MT Golay Decoder (G Dataflow)

Last Modified: January 9, 2017

Decodes a Golay-encoded bit stream. The decoder provides the two triple-correcting Golay codes: the Golay (23,12,3) code and the extended Golay (24,12,3) code. This node uses the Arithmetic decoding algorithm for decoding the Golay (23,12,3) encoded bit stream and the Kasami error-trapping decoding algorithm for decoding the extended Golay (24,12,3) encoded bit stream.

input bit stream

The bit sequence representing the Golay-encoded bits to decode. You can use MT Golay Encoder to generate the encoded bit stream.

Tip  

To ensure that the output bit stream returned by the Golay decoder corresponds to the complete message, give input bit stream a length that is an integer multiple of 23 (for the Golay (23,12,3) code) or 24 (for the Golay (24,12,3) code). If the length of input bit stream is not an integer multiple of 23 or 24, the last {length(input bit stream) modulo 23} bits are buffered in the decoder {length(input bit stream) modulo 24} bits (for Golay (24,12,3) code). These bits are added to the beginning of the incoming bit stream during the next iteration if reset? is set to FALSE.

datatype_icon

golay code type

The values of the code word length (n), data word length (k), and error correcting capacity (t), in bits.

Name Description
Golay (23,12,3)

The (n,k,t) values are (23, 12, 3).

Golay (24,12,3)

The (n,k,t) values are (24, 12, 3).

Default: Golay (23,12,3)

datatype_icon

error in

Error conditions that occur before this node runs. The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

Default: no error

datatype_icon

reset?

A Boolean that determines whether the internal state of the decoder is cleared.

TRUE Clears any buffered bits from previous iterations.
FALSE Continues decoding from the previous iteration. Any buffered bits from the previous iteration are added to the beginning of the input bit stream prior to decoding.

Default: TRUE

datatype_icon

output bit stream

Bit sequence decoded by this node.

datatype_icon

error out

Error information. The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.
