EXIT Convergence Analysis of BICM-ID Based on High-Dimensional Modulation and Polar-TPC



We analyze polar turbo product codes (TPC) used with high-dimensional modulations (HDM). Our analysis reveals that the polar-TPC can significantly improve performance via iterative HDM demodulation employed across parallel and pipeline TPC decoding, achieving 2 dB gain for 16 dimensions.
