Abstract

In this paper, we study the problem of error propagation in sliding window decoding (SWD) of spatially coupled LDPC (SC-LDPC) codes. A general decoder model that accounts for error propagation is proposed and analyzed, and the decoded block error rate (BLER) is calculated using the model. In order to improve the BLER performance under decoder error propagation conditions, adaptive variable node (VN) doping is proposed, assuming a noiseless binary feedback channel is available. Example calculations using the proposed model, as well as numerical simulation results, are used to show that adaptive VN doping improves the BLER performance compared to the periodic VN doping and to the undoped case.
