This paper presents new encoding and decoding methods for Berlekamp-Preparata convolutional codes (BPCCs) based on tail-biting technique. The proposed scheme can correct a single block of n bit errors relative to a guard space of m error-free blocks while no fractional rate loss is incurred. The proposed tail-biting BPCCs (TBBPCCs) can attain optimal complete burst error correction bound. Therefore, they have the optimal phased-burst-error-correcting capability for convolutional codes. Compared with the previous scheme, the proposed scheme can also improve error correcting capability.
