The paper deals with an iterative decoding algorithm for two or more dimensional turbo product codes, built using single parity block codes. Decoding is based on soft-input/soft-output (SISO) decoders for decoding component codes. The soft inputs of the decoder include two values, the soft channel value and an a priori value. The soft output of the component's decoder is an extrinsic value, which is an estimation of the log-likelihood ratio (LLR) of binary decisions given by the decoding algorithm. The extrinsic values are used in feedback as a priori information. Simulations show that simple parity block codes used as the component codes gives quite good results, although a very simple decoding algorithm is used.
