In this paper, a reduced complexity Low-Density Parity-Check (LDPC) decoder is designed and implemented on FPGA using a modified 2-bit Min-Sum algorithm. Simulation results reveal that the proposed decoder has improvement of 1.5 dB Eb/No at 10-5 bit error rate (BER) and requires fewer decoding iterations compared to original 2-bit Min-Sum algorithm. With a comparable BER performance to that of 3bit Min-Sum algorithm, the decoder implemented using modified 2-bit Min-Sum algorithm saves about 18% of FPGA slices and can achieve an average throughput of 10.2 Gbps at 4 dB Eb/No.
