Click here  to download a DOS demo (called tcdemo.exe) of the turbo code used by the UMTS/WCDMA/3GPP third generation cellular system. This demo was built from our stand-alone C decoder implementation. The code and its decoder are documented in the following paper: M.C. Valenti and J. Sun, The UMTS turbo code and an efficient decoder implementation suitable for software defined radios, Int. J. Wireless Info. Networks, vol. 8, no. 4, pp. 203-216, Oct. 2001.
