Near Gaussian Multiple Access Channel Capacity Detection and Decoding

by   Xiaojie Wang, et al.

We consider the design of low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes with close-to-capacity performance for non-orthogonal interleave division multiple access (IDMA).The degree profile of the LDPC code is optimized using extrinsic information transfer (EXIT) charts to match an IDMA low complexity multi-user detector. Analytical EXIT functions for the IDMA system are derived while verifying that the Gaussian approximation stays valid for a sufficiently large number of users. The resulting LDPC codes are of rather low-rate (e.g., Rc = 0:03 for 32 users) and thus, the practical design of such codes is quite challenging and may, due to the low code-rate, not even yield a performance close to the Gaussian multiple access channel (GMAC) capacity. Adding a serial concatenation with a simple repetition code allows to design matching LDPC codes with a higher rate and, this way, achieving closer to GMAC capacity. Moreover, the designed IDMA system can be flexibly reconfigured to support a wide range of different numbers of users by simply varying the repetition code rate, i.e., without the need for redesigning the LDPC code itself, making it an attractive non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) scheme for future wireless communication systems.
