A Min-Sum Algorithm Suitable for Hardware Implementation Based on LDPC Codes
Decoding algorithms with strong practical value not only have good decoding performance, but also have the computation complexity as low as possible. For this purpose, the paper points out the modified min-sum decoding algorithm(M-MSA). On the condition of no increasing in the decoding complexity, it makes the error-correcting performance improved by adding the appropriate scaling factor based on the min-sum algorithm(MSA), and it is very suitable for hardware implementation. Simulation results show that this algorithm has good BER performance, low complexity and low hardware resource utilization, and it would be well applied in the future.
