We compare LDPC block and LDPC convolutional codes with respect to their decoding performance under low decoding latencies. Protograph based regular LDPC codes are considered with rather small lifting factors. LDPC block and convolutional codes are decoded using belief propagation. For LDPC convolutional codes, a sliding window decoder with different window(More)
Electronic systems of the future require a very high bandwidth communications infrastructure within the system. This way the massive amount of compute power which will be available can be inter-connected to realize future powerful advanced electronic systems. Today, electronic inter-connects between 3D chipstacks, as well as intra-connects within 3D(More)
Window decoding schedules are very attractive for message passing decoding of spatially coupled LDPC codes. They take advantage of the inherent convolutional code structure and allow continuous transmission with low decoding latency and complexity. In this paper we show that the decoding complexity can be further reduced if suitable message passing(More)
Spatially coupled low-density parity-check (SC-LDPC) codes are considered for transmission over the block-fading channel. The diversity order of the SC-LDPC codes is studied using density evolution and simulation results. We demonstrate that the diversity order of the code can be increased, without lowering the code rate, by simply increasing the coupling(More)
—Low-density parity-check convolutional (LDPCC) codes, also known as spatially coupled LDPC codes, can be decoded using a message passing algorithm. In order to limit decoding latency and complexity, windowed decoding can be applied. Updates within the window can be performed either in parallel or serially. However, simulation results show that uniform(More)
Spatially-Coupled LDPC (SC-LDPC) codes have been recently shown to be very efficient for transmissions over nonergodic channels, in particular over block-fading channels [1]. In fact, it is possible to design a SC-LDPC code with any given code diversity [2]. In this work, we investigate the performance of SC-LDPC codes over block-fading channels, assuming a(More)
This work focuses on the design of SC-LDPC codes for transmission over non-ergodic, block-fading channels. Our main contribution is an algorithm, allowing to start from a (J,K)-regular, uncoupled LDPC ensemble, from which one can recursively build up a protograph-based SC-LDPC ensemble having any target diversity order d. The diversity order is achieved(More)

Within the framework that the IEEE 802.11e provides for quality of service (QoS) provisioning, effective admission control is required to ensure requisite delay and throughput for real time traffic. To this end, several admission control algorithms have been proposed. In this paper, we propose a measurement based admission control algorithm, with an aim to(More)
