Abstract

This paper deals with the performance of linear block codes which provide a new paradigm for transmission over multipath fading channels. Multi path channel fading is the main enemy for any wireless communications system. Therefore, for any novel approach applied at any wireless communication system, its efficiency is measured according to its ability of mitigating the distortion caused by fading. It causes time dispersion to the transmitted symbols resulting in inter symbol interference (ISI). ISI inter symbol interference problem is a major impairment of the wireless communication channel. To mitigate the ISI problem and to have reliable communications in wireless channel, channel equalizer and channel coding technique is often employed. In this paper the BER (Bit Error Rate) performance is shown from analytically and by means of simulation for multipath dispersive channels. We have designed a channel equalizer using MLSE (Viterbi algorithm) in this paper for such a multipath channel (introducing inter symbol interferences) with BPSK modulation based on the assumption that the channel can be perfectly estimated at the receiver. Obviously the performance of channel coding in terms of BER is better than uncoded channel.
