In this paper, we propose a class of implementation friendly structured LDPC codes with low error floors. The proposed codes exhibit no apparent error floors as compared with quasi-cyclic (QC) LDPC codes at long block lengths. A modified progressive edge-growth algorithm is used to construct the hierarchical quasi-cyclic (H-QC) LDPC codes. By adding implementation-friendly two-level hierarchy with limited types of second-level submatrices in the parity check matrix, coding performance is improved substantially over QC codes. We also show that QC-based decoder architecture can be easily applied to H-QC decoders to achieve better coding gain and higher throughput performance. Moreover, the degree of decoding parallelism and code length can be adjusted by changing the H-QC code construction parameters.
