WPAN Simulation Scenarios-2 with the Different Coding

  • Mohsen A. M. El-Bendary
Part of the Signals and Communication Technology book series (SCT)


In this chapter, the previous scenarios of the WPAN Bluetooth system simulation are repeated with more powerful error control schemes. The chapter presents the components of the convolutional encoders with different constraint lengths. The convolutional code is widely used as error control technique within different wireless communications systems. The MATLAB codes of the encoded packets using the convolutional codes are presented. The frame with the proposed channel coding is discussed; the user data ‘payload’ is decreased with the check bits increasing. The performance of the proposed scenarios is analyzed.
