This letter presents the first successful method for iterative stochastic decoding of state-of-the-art low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes. The proposed method shows the viability of the stochastic approach for decoding LDPC codes on factor graphs. In addition, simulation results for a 200 and a 1024 length LDPC code demonstrate the near-optimal performance of this method with respect to sum-product decoding. The proposed method has a significant potential for high-throughput and/or low complexity iterative decoding.
