In this paper, as the name suggests, shows the working of a Forward Error Correction (FEC) coding technique using convolutional encoding with Viterbi decoding. It can be used by anyone interested in designing or understanding wireless digital communications Technique systems. This paper initially explains the working of a convolutional encoder. The encoded bit stream is then passed through an Additive White Gaussian Noise (AWGN) channel, quantized and received at the decoder. Finally, the original data stream is recovered by either a hard decision Viterbi decoder or a soft decision Viterbi decoder.
