Abstract

This paper presents an extension of the IT++ library useful for the study of turbo receivers. Turbo receivers are implemented using basic Soft-Input Soft-Output (SISO) modules. From a programming point of view, SISO modules are represented by methods of one C++ class. Each SISO module is defined by a specific instantiation of the Maximum A Posteriori (MAP) algorithm. Thus, various configurations of turbo receivers can be obtained. Several examples of turbo receivers together with simulation results are given.
