In this correspondence, we introduce a new class of low-rate error correction codes called zigzag Hadamard (ZH) codes and their concatenation schemes. Each member of this class of codes is specified by a highly structured zigzag graph with each segment being a Hadamard codeword. The ZH codes enjoy extremely simple encoding and very low-complexity soft-input-soft-output (SISO) decoding based on a posteriori probability (APP) fast Hadamard transform (FHT) technique. We present an asymptotic… CONTINUE READING

Key Quantitative Results

  • Specifically, a rate-0.0107 concatenated code with three ZH components and an interleaver size of 65536 can achieve the bit error rate (BER) performance of 10/sup -5/ at -1.15dB, which is only 0.44 dB away from the ultimate Shannon limit.
