dvbs2ldpc

Low-density parity-check codes from DVB-S.2 standard

Syntax

```H = dvbs2ldpc(r) ```

Description

`H = dvbs2ldpc(r)` returns the parity-check matrix of the LDPC code with code rate `r` from the DVB-S.2 standard. `H` is a sparse logical matrix.

Possible values for `r` are 1/4, 1/3, 2/5, 1/2, 3/5, 2/3, 3/4, 4/5, 5/6, 8/9, and 9/10. The block length of the code is 64800.

The default parity-check matrix (32400-by-64800) corresponds to an irregular LDPC code with the structure shown in the following table.

RowNumber of 1s Per Row
16
2 to 324007

ColumnNumber of 1s Per Column
1 to 129608
12961 to 324003

Columns 32401 to 64800 form a lower triangular matrix. Only the elements on its main diagonal and the subdiagonal immediately below are 1s. This LDPC code is used in conjunction with a BCH code in the Digital Video Broadcasting standard DVB-S.2 to achieve a packet error rate below ${10}^{-7}$ at about 0.7 dB to 1 dB from the Shannon limit.

Examples

collapse all

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 `p`.

`enc = comm.LDPCEncoder(p);`

The parity check matrix has dimensions of (N-K)-by-N. Determine the length of the input message.

`msgLength = size(p,2) - size(p,1)`
```msgLength = 38880 ```
