On the Optimization of Number of Sub-interleavers for Turbo Codes

pdf PDF


Performance of the turbo codes mainly depends on the interleaver used. Recently, it is found that sub interleavers reduce the time complexity of the system to a large extent. This paper is an attempt to optimize the number of sub interleavers used for turbo codes. We have proposed a scheme that can optimize the number of sub interleavers. First of all, mathematical formulae have been derived for finding the possible number of sub interleavers for a given interleaver length. Secondly, a mathematical formula has been derived for choosing the best number of sub interleaver among all the possible sub interleavers. Results have been validated by considering sub interleaver composed of row-column and diagonal interleaver of length 1024.
