This paper addresses a novel scheme for variable rate error correction coding with interleavered puncturing serially concatenated convolutional code. In order to obtain a variable coding rate, the bits of the outer coder are perforated with a given puncturing pattern, and randomly interleaved. The effect of interleavered puncturing on the overall coding performance is analyzed, and the upper bound to the bit error probability of the proposed coder is derived. Moreover, to evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme some simulation results are presented with the iterative decoding procedure, in which the channel models of Rayleigh fading and additive white Gaussian noises are assumed.
