Wideband Direct-Sequence Code Division Multiple Access (W-CDMA) is the emerging protocol for the next generation (3G) wireless communication systems. W-CDMA has been designed to add features such as multimedia capabilities, high data rates and multi-rate services to the existing wireless communication framework. Several standards for third generation systems have been proposed and developed by different industrial committees in countries such as the U.S, Europe and Japan. All these standards have accepted CDMA in one form or another as the multiple access method for wireless communications requirements.
In this work, we study the implementation issues involved for one of the proposed Rate Compatible Punctured Convolution Coding (RCPC) to increase information rate in WCDMA, the detection algorithms for base-stations. It was found that these proposed algorithms for detection have different processing and precision requirements. In the rate compatible punctured convolution from each coded symbol some of the bits are punctured in order to achieve the higher information rate. At the same time decoding becomes quite easy even if some of the bits from the coded symbol are not available. We have written these algorithms for a single user at ideal conditions based on theory but not practically.
