Research output: Patent


Code designs for channel coding with side information (CCSI) based on combined source-channel coding are disclosed. These code designs combine trellis-coded quantization (TCQ) with irregular repeat accumulate (IRA) codes. The EXIT chart technique is used for IRA channel code design (and especially for capacity-approaching IRA channel code design). We emphasize the role of strong source coding and endeavor to achieve as much granular gain as possible by using TCQ. These code designs synergistically combine TCQ with IRA codes. By bringing together TCQ and EXIT chart-based IRA code designs, we are able to approach the theoretical limit of dirty-paper coding.
