Performance Enhancement of Max-Log-MAP Turbo Decoding Algorithm

Turbo decoder uses any one of the decoding algorithms, Maximum A posteriori Probability (MAP), or Soft Output Viterbi Algorithm (SOVA) because it produces error correction near to Shannon's limit .The Max-Log-MAP is a Soft Input Soft Output (SISO) algorithm, which determines the probability of most likely path through the trellis and hence it gives sub optimal performance compared to Log-MAP algorithm. A simple but effective technique to improve the performance of Max-Log-MAP (MLMAP) algorithm is to scale the extrinsic information exchanged between two decoders using appropriate Scaling Factors (SF).
