Performance analysis of a memory ARQ scheme with soft decision detectors Lau, Chiew Tong
An automatic repeat request (ARQ) scheme with memory and soft error detectors has been recently proposed by Benelli. Its performance was studied mainly through computer simulation. In this thesis, a generalized version of this ARQ scheme is examined. The selection of certain thresholds and weights to minimize the bit error rate in systems using a fixed number of packet repeats is considered. The evaluation of the average number of transmissions per packet in systems in which negatively acknowledged packets are retransmitted until successfully received is described. Finally, the performance of the memory ARQ scheme with forward error correction is analyzed.
