Description/Abstract

We propose a novel class of protograph low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes having a combinatorial rather than a random structure, which are termed multilevel-structured (MLS) LDPC codes. It is demonstrated that they posses a strikingly simple structure and, thus, benefit from reduced storage requirements, hardware-friendly implementations, and low-complexity encoding. Our simulation results provided for both additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) and uncorrelated Rayleigh (UR) channels demonstrate that these advantages accrue without compromising the attainable bit error ratio (BER) and block error ratio (BLER) performance, when compared with their previously proposed more complex random-construction-based counterparts, as well as with other structured codes of the same length.
