Title: Method for encoding a digital communication channel

Abstract: A method for encoding a digital communication channel is disclosed. The method includes the steps of first storing a frame data, which is inputted for a channel encoding operation, into an encoder RAM (ERAM0); second addressing the ERAM and storing the data into a register via a multiplexer in accordance with a control of a frame selection signal; third addressing the ERAM for reading the previous input data and storing the read data into the register; fourth selecting an input data among two register output data, inputting the selected input data into the convolutional encoder and generating a code symbol; and fifth selecting one among the code symbols and obtaining an output of the channel encoder that completed the convolutional encoding and interleaving operations.
