Most quasi-cyclic LDPC codes decoders of IEEE 802.11n and IEEE 802.16e standards adopt Layered decoding algorithm recently. A fast double layered decoding algorithm for quasi-cyclic LDPC codes in which two row groupings of check nodes are processed synchronously in order to speed the decoding processing is proposed. Compared to BP algorithm and normal Layered decoding algorithm, the proposed algorithm provides a faster decoding speed and more favorable tradeoffs among complexity, decoding speed and error correcting performance. Simulation results show validity and efficiency of the proposed decoding algorithm.
