A new block low-density parity-check (Block-LDPC) code based on quadratic permutation polynomials (QPPs) is proposed. The parity-check matrix of the Block-LDPC code is composed of a group of permutation submatrices that correspond to QPPs.
The scheme provides a large range of implementable LDPC codes. Indeed, the most popular quasi-cyclic LDPC (QC-LDPC) codes are just a subset of this scheme. Simulation results indicate that the proposed scheme can offer similar error performance and implementation complexity as the popular QC-LDPC codes.
