Design of Turbo-Code decoders for the 3GPP LTE/LTE-A standard focuses on achieving a high-throughput of up to 1 Gbps with low decoding latencies at very high code rates. At code rates close to one, as specified in LTE/LTE-A, the decoding process can oscillate. Although the decoder converges to a valid code word after half-iteration i, after half-iteration $$i+1$$ i + 1 the decoded code word is invalid again. To circumvent this, the CRC that is attached to each code word must be evaluated after each half-iteration. We present a generalized architecture for calculating the CRC On-the-fly during both non-interleaved and interleaved half-iterations and thus explicitly taking into account the requirements for low-latency Turbo-Code decoding. Further, we investigate the latency-, and energy savings provided by employing this calculation scheme. Lastly, we give post layout synthesis results for a case study implementation in state-of-the-art 28 nm FDSOI technology.
