In this paper, we proposed a Parallel-Layered Belief-Propagation (PLBP) algorithm first, which makes a breakthrough in utilizing the layered decoding algorithm on the “non-layered” quasi-cyclic (QC) LDPC codes, whose column weights are higher than one within layers. Our proposed PLBP algorithm not only achieves a better error performance, but also requires… CONTINUE READING
