What's the difference between block code and convolution code?
In block codes, information bits are followed by parity bits. In convolution codes, information bits are spread along the sequence. Block codes are memoryless whereas Convolution codes have memory. Convolution codes use small codewords in comparison to block codes, both achieving the same quality.
Block code code information in blocks while convolutional codes convolve information bit sequence
