Abstract In this paper, we propose a method for searching interleavers within a certain class, with the aim of designing turbo codes with good distance spectrum. The method is based on a modified version of Garello’s algorithm and consists in the calculation of frame error rate truncated upper bound. Here, it is applied to quadratic permutation polynomial (QPP) interleavers able to outperform those chosen for the long-term evolution (LTE) standard, for lengths up to 1,504 bits.» Read the summary
