In this paper, a modified min-sum decoding algorithm based on classified correction is proposed for low density parity check (LDPC) codes. Different from the single correction in the normalized belief propagation (BP)-based and offset BP-based algorithms , the proposed algorithm utilizes two corrections for both minimum and sub-minimum magnitudes of input messages in check nodes. These two correction factors can be obtained by analyzing the offset of updated messages in check nodes between the BP and the min-sum algorithms associated with check node degree. Simulation results show that the proposed algorithm can achieve performance very close to that of the BP algorithm. Furthermore, the FPGA implementation of this algorithm can reach a throughput of 200 Mbps at BER=10-6 with lower complexity and fewer resources than the BP algorithm.
