- In this letter, we address the problem of a finite-precision implementation of demapper and decoder with parity likelihood ration algorithm for LDPC-Coded M-QAM systems. By exploiting the inherent property of the variations in bit reliabilities caused by QAM signal constellation, we introduce a novel method of finite precision representations of decoder messages. This solution is obtained through the adoption of different the number of quantization bits and different quantization law for decoder messages of the different demodulated bit from the same received modulation symbol, that are able to face efficiently the clipping effect. Simulations results demonstrate that for comparable performance the new method can be implemented with much less quantization bits, which can lead to considerably lower decoding cost over the sum-product algorithm for decoding the low density parity check codes.
