Yang Han, Kiran Gunnam, Shaohua Yang, Hao Zhong, Nils Graef, Yuan Xing Lee: Selectively strengthening and weakening check-node messages in error-correction decoders. LSI Corporation, Mendelsohn Drucker & Associates PC, February 18, 2010: US20100042897-A1

In one embodiment, an LDPC decoder has a plurality of check-node units (CNUs) and a controller. Initially, the CNUs generate check-node messages based on an initial offset value selected by the controller. If the decoder converges on a trapping set, then the controller selects new offset values for ...
