Digital Transmission Decoder

Device for and Method of Identifying Minimum Candidate Codewords for List Decoder

This technology streamlines the decoding of digital transmissions by identifying which parts are the actual message and should be decoded first. The system also identifies the minimum number of messages that must be decoded to achieve desired results.

Encoded messages typically contain redundant data to counteract communications noise that can introduce errors, but the presence of extra information makes decoding more difficult. This technology overcomes the problem by treating redundant data as code words that identify the message portion.
