Comparative Performance Analysis of Block and Convolution Codes


  • Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering, Lovely Professional University Phagwara - 144411,Punjab, India


The main motivation of using Error Detection and Correction Codes is efficient transmission and reception of data through channel such that as to reduce the ber (bit error rate). This technique called as channel Channel coding reduces the errors caused in the data due to the noise while transmitting through communication channel. Two important types of channel coding are there- Block coding and convolutional coding. Here in this paper we have compared the performance of hamming code, Reed Solomon code and convolution codes by using bit error rate(ber)V/s Eb/No performance using BPSK (Binary Phase Shift Keying). MATLAB R2010a Simulink is used for performing the simulations.
