Abstract

Punctured convolutional codes with good performance are reported for rates ( n -1)/ n  with  n =5, 6, 7, 8 and constraint lengths  k =2, 3, . . ., 6. The tabulated codes are nonsystematic binary convolutional codes with maximum free distance and minimum information weight, for use with soft-decision Viterbi decoding
