Turbo Equalization

Started by November 13, 2006
         I am working on Turbo Equalization  based on MMSE-SC based
techniques.  I  have a question on choosing the chnanel code. All
papers which people refer  uses convolutional codes decoded by using
SOVA. Is there any reason why we use convolutional codes rather Turbo
codes ?
Any suggestion on this is highly appreciated.
