AbstractAs a class of high-performance forward error correction codes, turbo codes, which can approach the channel capacity, could become a candidate of the coding methods in future terrestrial broadcasting (TB) systems. Among all the demands of future TB system, high throughput and low latency are two basic requirements that need to be met. Parallel turbo decoding is a very effective method to reduce the latency and improve the throughput in the decoding stage. In this paper, a parallel turbo decoder is designed and implemented in field-programmable gate array (FPGA). A reverse address generator is proposed to reduce the complexity of interleaver and also the iteration time. A practical method of modulo operation is realized in FPGA which can save computing resources compared with using division operation. The latency of parallel turbo decoder after implementation can be as low as 23.2 us at a clock rate of 250 MHz and the throughput can reach up to 6.92 Gbps.
