A Non-Disjoint Group Shuffled Decoding for LDPC Codes

Yen-Cheng Hsu, Tofar C. -Y. Chang, Yu T. Su, Jian-Jia Weng

To reduce the implementation complexity of a belief propagation (BP) based low-density parity-check (LDPC) decoder, shuffled BP decoding schedules, which serialize the decoding process by dividing a complete parallel message-passing iteration into a sequence of sub-iterations, have been proposed. The so-called group horizontal shuffled BP algorithm partitions the check nodes of the code graph into groups to perform group-by-group message-passing decoding. This paper proposes a new grouping technique to accelerate the message-passing rate. Performance of the proposed algorithm is analyzed by a Gaussian approximation approach. Both analysis and numerical experiments verify that the new algorithm does yield a convergence rate faster than that of existing conventional or group shuffled BP decoder with the same computing complexity constraint.
