Reply To: Vienna 5G LLS – channel coding in LTEAcompliant

Did you adjust the decoding iterations? for turbo, 8 iterations are adequate; however, for LDPC, and based on the implemented decoder (serial-scheulding), you should use at least 16 decoding iterations.

In general, and at moderate code-rates and block lengths, 5G-LDPC and LTE-turbo codes have similar performance.
