In general, encoding for LDPC codes can be difficult to realize efficiently. The paper presents techniques and architectures for LDPC encoding that are efficient and practical for a particular class of codes. These codes are the irregular partitioned permutation LDPC codes recently introduced by the author (Hocevar, D.E., Proc. IEEE Int. Conf. on Commun., p.2708-12, 2003). Since these codes are quasi-cyclic, it is known that a simpler encoding process does exist. The paper goes beyond that basic method by exploiting other structural properties to allow for a simpler and faster encoding process, in both software and hardware. Solutions for some rank deficient codes are also given.
