Near-capacity performance of turbo codes is generally achieved with a large number of decoding iterations. Various iteration stopping rules introduced in the literature often induce performance loss. This paper proposes a novel partial decoding iteration scheme using a bit-level convergence test. We first establish decoding optimality of windowed partial iteration for non-converged bits given that convergence has been achieved on window boundaries. We next present two criteria for testing bit convergence based on cross-entropy, and propose a windowed partial iteration algorithm. The overall complexity and memory requirements of the new algorithm are evaluated and compared with known algorithms. Simulations reveal that the proposed scheme suffers essentially no performance loss compared to full iterations, while reducing the decoding complexity. We also briefly discuss possible extensions of the proposed scheme to general iterative receivers.
