[GSoC] FEC Update

Hey all,

I have some updates for you too.
After some evaluations with my mentors, I started from scratch and
wrote my own OOT module gr-celec which now contains a working rate 1/n
Viterbi Decoder which can have as many states as it wants. If it has
more than 8 it can also use SSE kernels :smiley:

Results are far better than my efforts to speed up the existing
gr-trellis.

Complex full euclidean branch metrics with SSE4.1 are approx 4x faster
than the generic kernels, and Viterbi Path Update kernels with SSE4.1
are approx 3x faster than the generic ones. I am quite satisfied with
these results.

You can learn a bit more about it on my blog
http://spectrejan.blogspot.de/

Now I have to do some cosmetics to gr-trellis/examples and then start
on the Log-MAP Decoder.

Regards,
Jan

Hey all,

GSoC14 is coming to an end. So one final update before the “pencils
down” date.
Max-Log-Map decoder is finished. Code is available on my Github[1].
More Info in my blog[2].
So now it is time for code cleanup and documentation.

GSoC14 was fun and I’m looking forward to GRCON now :slight_smile:

Best

Regards, Jan
