—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)
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)
—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)
Three areas of ongoing research in channel coding are surveyed, and recent developments are presented in each area: spatially coupled Low-Density Parity-Check (LDPC) codes, non-binary LDPC codes, and polar coding.
—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 . In fact, it is possible to design a SC-LDPC code with any given code diversity . In this work, we investigate the performance of SC-LDPC codes over block-fading channels, assuming… (More)
