Polar codes are capacity-achieving error-correcting codes with an explicit construction that can be decoded with low-complexity algorithms. In this work, we show how the stateof-the-art low-complexity decoding algorithm can be improved to better accommodate low-rate codes. More constituent codes are recognized in the updated algorithm and dedicated hardware is added to efficiently decode these new constituent codes. We also alter the polar code construction to further decrease the latency and… CONTINUE READING
