In this paper, we design rate-compatible punctured repeat-accumulate (RA) codes for the additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) channel. The design involves optimizing the punctured profile of a mother code such that the resulting high rate codes give good performance. A three phase puncturing scheme is employed and the design employs EXIT charts. These codes are very simple in terms of complexity, and so are quite competitive to rate-compatible turbo or low density parity check (LDPC) codes… CONTINUE READING
