IEEE 802.15.3-2003 is a standard for high data rate wireless personal area networks (WPAN). The IEEE 802.15.3c-2009 amendment describes an alternative PHY layer to the IEEE 802.15.3-2003 standard. The new mmWave PHY layer operates in the 60 GHz band (57 – 64 GHz) and allows for air throughputs of up to 5 Gbit/s. The standard uses LDPC codes for these high data rate modes. In particular, the single carrier (SC) mode and the high speed interface (HSI) mode use LDPC codes.
The standard defines five LDPC codes with two block lengths. In order to satisfy the high throughput requirements, special decoder architectures with an increased parallelism compared to other standards become mandatory.
