Abstract

The expression for the minimum Hamming weight of the output of a constituent convolutional encoder, when its input is a weight-2 sequence is revisited. The new expression particularly facilitates the calculation of the effective free distance of recently proposed schemes, namely non-systematic turbo codes and pseudo-randomly punctured turbo codes.
