## An Efficient Multirate LDPC-CC Decoder With a Layered Decoding Algorithm for the IEEE 1901 Standard

An area-efficient multirate low-density parity-check convolutional code (LDPC-CC) decoder is presented in this brief. Using the layered decoding algorithm, the decoder achieves a bet- ter performance than the message-passing algorithm; the extrinsic- …
