This paper considers the performance of single parity check (SPC) multidimensional product codes in an Additive White Gaussian Noise channel. Asymptotic performance bounds are derived and compared to simulation results. A new code structure based on SPC product codes is introduced. This structure involves interleaving between the encoding of each dimension.(More)
—We propose a simple class of encoding/decoding techniques that can be used to improve the information outage rate of certain multiple-input–multiple-output (MIMO) systems. Gains in outage rate can be achieved at low to moderate signal-to-noise ratios in MIMO systems that have fewer receive antennas than transmit antennas. This performance improvement is(More)
The parallel and serial concatenation of codes is well established as a practical means of achieving excellent performance. In this paper, we introduce the parallel and serial concatenation of single parity check (SPC) product codes. The weight distribution of these codes is analyzed and the performance is bounded. Simulation results confirm these bounds at(More)
