Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The Shannon limit is Eb/N0=(2^(n)-1)/n where n=2*r

So the Shannon limit for r=1/2 should be Eb/N0=1 and in dB 0dB.

In the literature it is often said to be 0.97869 (0,19dB)!

For example here:

and here:

I also found a hint in one document that the shannon limit is in deed 1 (0dB), but only for Codes of rate 1/2 defined over GF(q) and 0.97869 (0,19dB) for binary Codes

Could anybody explain that to me?

Thanks in advance :),
