A rate R=5/20 hypergraph-based woven convolutional code with free distance 120
Publikation/Tidskrift/Serie: IEEE Transactions on Information Theory
A rate R=5/20 hypergraph-based woven convolu- tional code with overall constraint length 67 and constituent con- volutional codes is presented. It is based on a 3-partite, 3-uniform, 4-regular hypergraph and contains rate R=3/4 constituent convolutional codes with overall constraint length 5. Although the code construction is based on low-complexity codes, the free distance of this construction, computed with the BEAST algorithm, is dfree=120, which is remarkably large.
