Performs LDPC decoding based on the LDPC serial decoding schedule. The LDPC serial decoding schedule is based on a serial update of symbol nodes messages. This update can be considered as shuffling of the flooding schedule. Instead of sending all messages from symbol nodes to check nodes and then all messages from check nodes to symbol nodes, as done in the flooding schedule, the serial schedule goes over the check nodes in some order and, for each node, sends all messages into the node and then all messages out from the node.

The message that is sent from message node (v) to the check node (c) must not take into account the message sent in the previous iteration from c to v. The same is true for messages passed from check nodes to message nodes.

parity check matrix

The sparse parity check matrix generated by MT LDPC Generate Regular Parity Check Matrix or MT LDPC Generate Irregular Parity Check Matrix. You can also set a parity check matrix that is not rank deficient in this parameter.

datatype_icon

likelihoods

The likelihoods of the received symbols.

datatype_icon

maximum number of iterations

The maximum number of iterations for the iterative decoding process. The decoder stops iterating after the number of iterations exceeds the value of the maximum number of iterations or if the decoder satisfies other conditions.

Default: 100

datatype_icon

error in

Error conditions that occur before this node runs. The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

Default: no error

datatype_icon

reset?

A Boolean that determines whether the internal state of the decoder is cleared.

TRUE Clears any buffered bits from previous iterations.
FALSE Continues decoding from the previous iteration. Any buffered bits from the previous iteration are added to the beginning of the input bit stream prior to decoding.

Default: TRUE

datatype_icon

output bit stream

Bit sequence decoded by this node.

datatype_icon

error out

Error information. The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.
