This paper complements and generalizes the results in [1], [2] while taking new formulas from [3] into account. We compare convolutional and LDPC codes of different rates with respect to their structural delay. This property is intrinsic to the encoding and decoding process and gives a fundamental limit to the achievable latency for end-to-end communication, even when infinite processing speed is assumed. We show that in the case of very low delay convolutional codes perform better than LDPC… CONTINUE READING
