Prefix-Free Code Distribution Matching for 5G New Radio

01/16/2020 ∙ by Junho Cho, et al. ∙ 0

We use prefix-free code distribution matching (PCDM) for rate matching (RM) in some 5G New Radio (NR) deployment scenarios, realizing a wide range of information rates from 1.4 to 6.0 bit/symbol in fine granularity of 0.2 bit/symbol. We study the performance and implementation of the PCDM-based RM, in comparison with the low-density parity-check (LDPC)-based RM, as defined in the 5G NR standard. Simulations in the additive white Gaussian noise channel show that up to 2.16 dB gain in the signal-to-noise ratio can be obtained with the PCDM-based RM at a block error rate of 10-2 when compared to LDPC-based RM in the tested scenarios, potentially at a smaller hardware cost.
