The following tool is capable of predicting the achievable Bit Error Rate (BER) performance exhibited by a wide range of wireless transceiver schemes. The estimated BER performance is calculated using a semi-analytical model. The model employed is particularly accurate for uncoded systems, where it may be regarded as fully analytical. In the case of coded systems the model is designed to approximate the performance of the particular transceiver scheme employed by the authors. More specifically, we used a parallel-concatenated turbo-coded system.
