Low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes from DVB-S.2 standard
Create an LDPC parity check matrix for a code rate of 3/5 from the DVB-S.2 standard.
p = dvbs2ldpc(3/5);
Create an LDPC encoder object from the parity-check matrix
enc = comm.LDPCEncoder(p);
The parity-check matrix has dimensions of (N-K)-by-N. Calculate the length of the input message.
msgLength = size(p,2) - size(p,1)
msgLength = 38880

H— Parity-check matrix
Parity-check matrix, returned as a numeric matrix.
The default parity-check matrix of size 32,400-by-64,800 corresponds to an irregular LDPC code with the structure shown in this table.
|Row||Number of 1s per Row|
|2 to 32400||7|
|Column||Number of 1s per Column|
|1 to 12960||8|
Columns from 32,401 to 64,800 form a lower triangular matrix. Only the elements on the main diagonal of the matrix and the subdiagonal immediately below the main diagonal are 1s. This LDPC code is used in conjunction with a BCH code in the DVB-S.2 standard to achieve a packet error rate below at about 0.7 dB to 1 dB from the Shannon limit.
Usage notes and limitations:
All inputs must be constants. Expressions or variables are allowed if their values do not change.
