A new trend in wireless communication systems has dictated the need for dynamical adaptation of communication systems in order to suit environmental requirements. Wireless networks usually employ sophisticated Forward Error Correction (FEC) techniques such as Viterbi algorithm to combat with the channel distortion effects such as multipath fading and intersymbol interference. Viterbi algorithm is employed in wireless communication to decode the Convolution codes; these are the class of FEC codes. Such decoders are complex & dissipates large amount of power.
