Performs interleaving using a fixed number of branches and a fixed unit delay.
Each branch has different delays associated with it. Hence, the data input of each interleaver branch is delayed by a specific amount (the amount of delay in that branch) before the interleaver returns the data. A convolutional interleaver is twice as efficient as a block interleaver.
The input data to the interleaver.
number of branches
The number of branches of the convolutional interleaver. Data elements pass through the branches in a cyclic fashion. For example, in an N branch convolutional interleaver, data element 0 goes through branch 0, element 1 goes through branch 1, element N-1 goes through branch N-1, element N returns through branch 0, and so on. Each branch incorporates different delays.
The unit delay value. If this value is defined as D, then the number of delays on the ith branch is (i×D). If the total number of branches is N, then i = 0, 1,…, N-1.
The shift register values when the convolutional interleaver begins operation.
Error conditions that occur before this node runs.
The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.
Default: no error
A Boolean that determines whether to check the current input parameters. The current input parameters are always checked on the first run of this node.
||Checks input parameters.
||Does not check input parameters.
The convolutional interleaved data returned by this node.
