Re: [10GBT] More on Fixed Point Decoder of the (1024, 833) Code


The a-priori probability of the received points is a 12D function in the
case of the PAM12T constellation. It is a 2D function in the case of the
donut constellation.

It may be that the BER loss due to the uniform a-priori probability
approximation is very small at higher BERs. However, if this additional BER
loss is caused by an induced error floor due to the approximation, then this
is a very serious issue.
