In this paper we propose a method of constructing quasi-cyclic low-density parity-check (QC-LDPC) codes of large length by combining QC-LDPC codes of small length as their component codes, via the Chinese remainder theorem. The girth of the QC-LDPC codes obtained by the proposed method is always larger than or equal to that of each component code. By applying the method to array codes, we present a family of high-rate regular QC-LDPC codes with no 4-cycles. Simulation results show that they have almost the same performance as random regular LDPC codes.
