HARQ Aided Systematic LT Coding for Amplify-Forward and Decode-Forward Cooperation
—Systematic Luby Transform (SLT) codes constitute rateless codes, which are capable of adaptively adjusting their code rate depending on the channel quality without explicit channel state information (CSI) at the transmitters. SLTs are also suitable for space-time collaboration aided relay networks. In this paper, an iterative decoding aided SLT scheme is combined with 16-QAM transmission in a wireless relay aided network. The Bit Error Ratio (BER) results and Extrinsic Information Transfer (EXIT) charts are provided to evaluate the performance of the proposed scheme. The simulation results show that the proposed scheme using amplify-and-forward (AF) relaying achieves a 2.5dB gain at a BER of 10−5, while the attainable improvement is nearly 6dB for decode-andforward (DF) relaying, compared to the non-cooperative scheme, where the 16-QAM and the SLT decoder work independently. Moreover, the AF relaying aided SLT coded 16-QAM scheme is more beneficial, when the relay station is clos...
