A high-speed and high-coding-gain Viterbi decoder LSI with low power consumption is developed using CMOS master-slice LSI. By employment of the SST (scarce state transition) scheme, this LSI achieves a good Pε performance (4-2 dB net coding gain at Pε = 1 x 10-6), drastic reduction of power consumption and number of gates with low development costs.
