LogiCORE Viterbi Decoder v6.0 - Errors on low-noise data when DC offset is present on a Viterbi decoder


Keywords: BER

When the data input to the decoder has a DC offset, this can result in a degradation of the BER performance.


To resolve this issue, remove the DC bias in the soft-input data before entering the data into the Viterbi decoder and use the BEST STATE option to improve performance.

Please see (Xilinx Answer 29448) for a detailed list of LogiCORE Viterbi Decoder Release Notes and Known Issues.
