- A high-performance low-complexity decoding algorithm for LDPC codes is proposed in this paper, which has the advantages of both bit-flipping (BF) algorithm and sum-product algorithm (SPA). The proposed soft bit-flipping algorithm requires only simple comparison and addition operations for computing the messages between bit and check nodes, and the amount of those operations is also small. By increasing the utilization ratio of the computed messages and by adopting nonuniform quantization, the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) gap to the SPA is reduced to 0.4dB at the frame error rate of 10-4 with only 5-bit assignment for quantization. LDPC codes with high column or row weights, which are not suitable for the SPA decoding due to the complexity, can be practically implemented without much worsening the error performance.
