In this paper, an area efficient and high throughput multi-rate quasi-cyclic low-density parity-check (QC-LDPC) decoder for IEEE 802.11n applications is proposed. An overlapped message passing scheme and the nonuniform quantization scheme are incorporated to reduce the overall area and power of the proposed QC-LDPC decoder. In order to enhance the decoding… CONTINUE READING
