turbo code

A type of channel coding that uses a convolutional code and a type of Viterbi decoder that outputs a continuous value rather than a 0 or 1. See convolutional code and Viterbi decoder.

Moreover, as Samsung will demonstrate again at NAB 2007, the combination of SRS and Turbo code makes reception possible at high mobile speeds, such as in a car or on a train, and in urban environments which have a large amount of interference reflected from buildings and objects.
