Plots the expected BER curve of soft decision quantized Viterbi decoders

File Information

Computes BER v EbNo curve for convolutional encoding / soft decision
Viterbi decoding scheme assuming BPSK.
Brute force Monte Carlo approach is unsatisfactory (takes too long)
to find the BER curve.
The computation uses a quasi-analytic (QA) technique that relies on the
estimation (approximate one) of the information-bits Weight Enumerating
Function (WEF) using
A simulation of the convolutional encoder. Once the WEF is estimated, the analytic formula for the BER is used.

Here is an oct2bin function to add to path for his other programs and this one.
Give a comment if you get valid results. I'm working with Gpoly[133 171] to see what Bd and WEF gives.
function binary = oct2bin(octal,bin_len)
% oct2bin(octal,binary_length) returns the binary representation
% of the octal input number, where binary_length is the desired
% number of binary digits to be output.
bin_len=7;%added for Gpoly[133 171] JC 7/21/08 (bin_len=8 may be more correct)
binary = zeros(1,bin_len+2);
i = 1;
oct = octal;
while (oct > 0)
if oct > 9
oct_digit = rem(oct,10);
oct_digit = oct;
for k = 1:3
binary(i) = rem(oct_digit,2);
oct_digit = floor(oct_digit/2);
i = i+1;
oct = fix(oct/10);
binary = binary(1,bin_len:-1:1);
