This system is divided into two distinct part: The constraint length plays usihg important role in the efficiency of convolution encoder hence, it needs a better understanding. The System Block Diagram for the project. For the proposed work, an integration of correct hardware and software is required for device to function appropriately.

decoser Memory is organized as 6 16×10 memory banks. For a message of the length L, after the initial phase of M encoded bits dk, there are L – M identical trellis segments. Entity encoder is a top level entity for entity shiftadd and mux A convolutional encoder is implemented as a Mealy machine whose output is a function of the present state and the input applied. The Viterbi algorithm is used to find the most likely path to determine the hidden input states.


Thereby it becomes necessary to quantize it into several voltage levels so that it can be processed digitally. The resulting output sequences, V1, V2 are generated by modulo 2 adders corresponding to each entering inut.

Whenever, the received voltages are digitized before decoding the received bit sequence, then the process is known as hard decision decoding.

To decode a convolution code some algorithm must be adopted at the receiver side. Hence, it gains benefit through the reuse of the same hardware. The Decoder will then decodes the received data and transmits the decoded data at the Decoder Output. Implementwtion hardware resource requirement hugely changes in response to channel noise conditions.

Design and Implementation of Viterbi Decoder Using VHDL

RESET input resets the whole system. This is vhddl each binary input symbol to the registers will generate 2 coded symbols at the output. The schematic diagram for memory unit and state diagram for memory bank is shown as below. Traceback is carried out in memory unit. The overall design is carried out using VHDL code.

The code can be recovered significantly even in the presence of noise. PopDataOut is the output from stack0. It is simple and has good performance with low implementation cost [7].

Hence, i,plementation chip generated in this project functions as a implrmentation, specifically Viterbi decoder, for digital communications over noisy channels. This can benefit for low power design of Forward error control approach. The survival selection is implemented by 8 bit subtraction, the path metric of the survival is stored in 8 bit register inside ACS vhdo.


In this way a level of correlation between each sample in the signal is automatically obtained. In the back-trace scheme, only the survivor path information for each state is stored for each code symbol. All the corrupted bits can be restored to their correct values during the trace-back procedure in Viterbi decoding. Converting State Diagram to Trellis Diagram. The ACS unit identifies path with lowest cost metric. In shift update method, the survivor path information is shifted in to the registers.

The Decoder will then decode vuterbi simulated output and transmit results at the Decoder Output. The Encoder System can be configured independently. The survivor path storage block stores the corresponding bit-sequence of the lowest cost paths.
