Abstract

In this paper we present new low complexity PSK-TCM codes with noninteger bit rates. The codes are especially suited for data transmission in the Rayleigh fading channel, e.g. for mobile communication. Our basic idea is to use periodically different signal alphabets (MPSK and 2M-PSK) for transmission. The resulting hybrid TCM codes show improved performance in the Rayleigh fading channel compared to known TCM-schemes.
