Low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes based on structured parity check matrices are widely used due to their favorable implementation properties. Often, however, the convergence threshold is optimized based on the general LDPC code ensemble (i.e., the degree profile only) without taking into account the imposed structure, leading to a mismatch of(More)
In this paper, we highlight the class of spatially coupled codes and discuss their applicability to long-haul and submarine optical communication systems. We first demonstrate how to optimize irregular spatially coupled LDPC codes for their use in optical communications with limited decoding hardware complexity and then present simulation results with an(More)
