Non-Binary LDPC codes offer higher performances than their binary counterpart but suffer from higher decoding complexity. A solution to reduce the decoding complexity is to use the Extended Min-Sum algorithm. The first step of this algorithm requires the generation of the first n_m largest Log-Likelihood Ratio (LLR), sorted in increasing order, of each received symbol. In the case where GF(q) symbols are transmitted using a BPSK modulation, we propose a simple systolic architecture that generates the sorted list of symbols.
