Bit-interleaved coded modulation with iterative decoding using constellation shaping

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Boon Khoo, Dr Stephane Le Goff, Professor Bayan Sharif, Professor Harris Tsimenidis



We investigate the association between constellation shaping and bit-interleaved coded modulation with iterative decoding (BICM-ID). To this end, we consider a technique which consists of inserting shaping block codes between mapping and channel coding functions in order to achieve constellation shaping. By assuming the example of a 2-b/s/Hz 16-quadrature amplitude modulation BICM-ID, it is demonstrated using computer simulations that this technique can improve the performance of BICM-ID schemes by a few tenths of a decibel. © 2006 IEEE.
