Use the Viterbi Decoder block for fixed-point hard-decision convolutional decoding.
The Viterbi Decoder block has the
Decision type parameter set to
Hard decision, and on the Data Types tab, the
State metric word length is set to
4 and the
Output data type is set to
boolean. The bit error rate is displayed and captured to the
BER workspace variable.
The computed bit error rate is 0.00256. The total number of errors is 118. The total number of bits processed is 46144.
