Enhancing the LT component of raptor codes for inactivation decoding
International ITG Conference on Systems, Communications and Coding (SCC 2015)
Contribution to Conference
Based on recent results on the performance of LT codes under inactivation decoding, we show how to design the LT component of a Raptor code aiming at minimizing the decoding complexity under inactivation decoding. We provide a LT code design which has a lower decoding complexity compared to standardized Raptor codes while having exactly the same average encoding complexity and a similar probability of decoding failure. The proposed LT code would allow to increase the decoding throughput of raptor codes.
