The performance of a belief propagation decoder for low-density parity-check codes is limited by the presence oftrapping sets in the code’s graph. This leads to an error floor at higher signal-to-noise ratios. We propose the use of anaugmented decoder which operates by iteratively decoding on a set of graphs which have a subset of repeatedcheck nodes. We compare the augmented decoder to other modified belief propagation decoders that have beenpresented in the literature. We show that for all the codes considered, the augmented decoder yields the best frameerror rate in the error floor region.
