Potentially large storage requirements and long initial decoding delays are two practical issues related to the decoding of low-density parity-check (LDPC) convolutional codes using a continuous pipeline decoder architecture. In this paper, we propose several reduced complexity decoding strategies to lessen the storage requirements and the initial decoding(More)
LDPC convolutional codes have been shown to be capable of achieving the same capacity-approaching performance as LDPC block codes with iterative message-passing decoding. However, traditional means of comparing block and convolutional codes tied to the implementation complexity of trellisbased decoding are irrelevant for message-passing decoders. In this(More)
In this paper, we study random puncturing of protograph-based spatially coupled low-density parity-check (SC-LDPC) code ensembles. We show that, with respect to iterative decoding threshold, the strength and suitability of an LDPC code ensemble for random puncturing over the binary erasure channel (BEC) is completely determined by a single constant θ(More)
Low-density parity-check (LDPC) convolutional codes are capable of achieving excellent performance with low encoding and decoding complexity. In this paper, we discuss several graph-cover-based methods for deriving families of time-invariant and time-varying LDPC convolutional codes from LDPC block codes and show how earlier proposed LDPC convolutional code(More)
Molecular communication is a new field of communication where molecules are used to transfer information. Among the proposed methods, molecular communication via diffusion (MCvD) is particularly effective. One of the main challenges in MCvD is the intersymbol interference (ISI), which inhibits communication at high data rates. Furthermore, at the nano(More)
Low-density parity-check convolutional codes offer the same good error-correcting performance as low-density parity-check block codes while having the ability to encode and decode arbitrary lengths of data. This makes these codes well suited to certain applications, such as forward error control on packet switching networks. In this paper we propose a(More)
We propose a novel code design technique for irregular LDPC convolutional codes. The constructed codes can be encoded continuously in real time with the help of a shift-register based encoder. For moderate values of the syndrome former memory, simulation results show that the constructed codes outperform LDPC block codes with comparable hardware (processor)(More)
While low-density parity-check (LDPC) convolutional codes tend to significantly outperform LDPC block codes with the same processor complexity, large storage requirements and a long initial decoding delay are two issues related to their continuous pipeline decoding architecture [1]. In this paper, we propose reduced complexity decoding strategies to lessen(More)
Low-density parity-check (LDPC) convolutional codes have been shown to be capable of achieving capacity-approaching performance with iterative message-passing decoding. In the first part of this paper, using asymptotic methods to obtain lower bounds on the free distance to constraint length ratio, we show that several ensembles of regular and irregular LDPC(More)
