Non-binary LDPC coded OFDM in impulsive power line channels

In this paper, we propose Irregular Non-Binary Low Density Parity Check (IR-NB-LDPC) codes with Signed Log Fast Fourier Transform (SL-FFT) decoding algorithm to overcome the harsh environment of power-line communication (PLC) channels. Their performance is compared with Irregular Binary LDPC (IR-B-LDPC) codes using the Sum Product algorithm (SPA). The… (More)
