AbstractDesigns and constructions of quasi-cyclic (QC) LDPC codes for the AWGN channel are presented. The codes are constructed based on the conventional parity-check matrices of Reed-Solomon (RS) codes and are referred to as RS-QC-LDPC codes. Several classes of RS-QC-LDPC codes are given. Cycle structural properties of the Tanner graphs of codes in these classes are analyzed and specific methods for constructing codes with girth at least eight and reducing their short cycles are presented. The designed codes perform well in both waterfall and low error-rate regions.
