convolutional code
A type of error-correction code in which (a) each m-bit information symbol (each m-bit string) to be encoded is transformed into an n-bit symbol, where n>m and (b) the transformation is a function of the last k information symbols, where k is the constraint length of the code. Note: Convolutional codes are often used to improve the performance of radio and satellite links.
