A New LDPC Decoder for the DVB-S2 Receiver

  • Nguyen Tung Hung Telecommunications University, Nha Trang, Vietnam


A new LDPC decoder for the DVB-S2 receiver is proposed in this research work. This new decoder contains a set of equivalent LDPC decoders operating in parallel mode. The simulation results show that this decoder can improve the performance of DVB-S2 receiver with acceptable complexity. Furthermore, a new adaptive decoding technique for a trade-off between the calculation complexity and the required performance in the DVB-S2 receiver is proposed.
