The implementation of a soft-output Viterbi decoder for an eight-state duo-binary code is described. This decoder is to be used in a turbo-decoder for convolutional codes. The implementation was made with the SYNOPSYS environment and targeted an ASIC 0.18 μm technology. The layout obtained has a working frequency of 150 MHz and thus an output data rate of 300 Mbits/s.
