In this letter, we propose a class of irregular structured low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes with low error floor and low encoding complexity by designing the parity check matrix in a triangular plus dual-diagonal form. The proposed irregular codes clearly lower the error floor and dramatically improve the performance in the waterfall region of error-rate curves. Being characterized by linear encoding complexity, the encoders of the proposed codes attain throughputs over 10 Gbit/s.
