  • Abstract In this paper we presents a new radix-4 butterfly design for Viterbi decoders. The branch symmetry of the proposed radix-4 butterfly is exploited to design a reduced radix-4 butterfly module to simplify the implementation of the soft-decision Viterbi decoder. By exploiting the branch symmetry, only a half of branch metrics need to be computed, while other metrics can be derived from the computed branches. Therefore, the branch metric computation of the radix-4 butterfly can be reduced by a factor of 2.Then we use the proposed reduced module to build a Viterbi decoder and described in VHDL code. Finally synthesis and simulation has be done by using ISE 6.1i(Xilinx synthesis tool) and ModelSim XE III 6.0a(simulation tool).
    Experimental results indicate that the proposed radix-4 butterfly design can reduce the number of FPGA slices of the radix-4 butterfly module by 19% over the conventional design; moreover, the Viterbi decoder with proposed radix-4 butterfly modules can reduce the number of slices about 11%.
