Abstract--A discrete (binary-input 2q
-ary output) communica-
tion channel with memory is introduced with the objective to judi-
ciously capture both the statistical memory and the soft-decision
information of time-correlated fading channels modulated via
binary phase-shift keying and coherently demodulated with an
output quantizer of resolution q. It is shown that the discrete
channel can be explicitly described in terms of its binary input
