Near-Capacity Irregular Precoded Linear Dispersion Codes

Wu, N and Hanzo, L. (2008) Near-Capacity Irregular Precoded Linear Dispersion Codes At IEEE ICC'08, China. 19 - 23 May 2008. , pp. 4501-4505.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


In this treatise, we propose a novel serial concatenated RSC-coded Irregular Precoded Linear Dispersion Codes (IR-PLDC), which is capable of operating near MIMO channel’s capacity. The irregular structure combined with the employment of an Infinite Impulse Response (IIR) precoder facilities the proposed system’s operation across a wide range of SNRs, while maintaining an infinitesimally low BER. Each coding block of the IR-PLDC scheme is designed with nearcapacity operation in mind with the aid of Extrinsic Information Transfer (EXIT) charts. The proposed RSC-coded IR-PLDC scheme is capable of operating as close as 2.5dB to the MIMO channel’s capacity, namely at SNRs as low as ? = ?7dB.
