This paper describes and analyzes low-density parity-check code families that support variety of different rates while maintaining the same fundamental decoder architecture. Such families facilitate the decoding hardware design and implementation for applications that require communication at different rates, for example to adapt to changing channel conditions. Combining rows of the lowest-rate parity-check matrix produces the parity-check matrices for higher rates. An important advantage of this approach is that all effective code rates have the same blocklength. This approach is compatible with well known techniques that allow low-complexity encoding and parallel decoding of these LDPC codes. This technique also allows the design of programmable analog LDPC decoders. The proposed design method maintains good graphical properties and hence low error floors for all rates.
