Near-capacity dirty-paper code designs based on TCQ and IRA codes Conference Paper uri icon


  • This paper addresses near-capacity dirty-paper code designs based on TCQ and IRA codes, where the former is employed as the most efficient means of vector quantization and the latter for their capacity-approaching performance. By bringing together TCQ - the best quantizer from the source coding community and EXIT chart based IRA code designs -the best from the channel coding community, we are able to approach the theoretical limit of dirty-paper coding. For example, at 0.25 b/s, one of our code designs (with 1024-state TCQ) performs 0.83 dB away from the capacity.
