LDPC codes have been intensively used in various wireless communication applications, due to their increased BER performance. The present paper summarizes the state of the art applications of short length LDPC codes and proposes FPGA based application specific hardware architectures for short-length LDPC decoders. The decoding algorithms considered for implementation are both belief propagation and min-sum algorithm. Due to the increased BER performances, the proposed architecture make use of… CONTINUE READING
