LDPC code design for asynchronous Slepian-Wolf coding Academic Article uri icon


  • We consider asynchronous Slepian-Wolf coding where the two encoders may not have completely accurate timing information to synchronize their individual block code boundaries, and propose LDPC code design in this scenario. A new information-theoretic coding scheme based on source splitting is provided, which can achieve the entire asynchronous Slepian-Wolf rate region. Unlike existing methods based on source splitting, the proposed scheme does not require common randomness at the encoder and the decoder, or the construction of super-letter from several individual symbols. We then design LDPC codes based on this new scheme, by applying the recently discovered source-channel code correspondence. Experimental results validate the effectiveness of the proposed method. 2006 IEEE.
