On the Decoding of Non-Binary LDPC Codes from an Implementation Perspective

Speaker: Laura Conde-Canencia
Affiliation: Assoc. Professor Université de Bretagne Sud (France)

Abstract: This talk introduces non-binary (NB) LDPC coding and decoding. Then it reviews our last advances on NB-LDPC decoder implementation, focusing on the check node processor design.

A brief presentation of the Lab-STICC laboratory (Bretagne, France) is also planned.

Biography:  Dr. Laura Conde-Canencia received Engg. Degree from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Spain, in 2000, and Ph.D. from Telecom Bretagne, France, in 2004. Her PhD thesis dealt with spectral-efficiency maximization in high-performance digital communication systems. Particularly, she investigated the association of high-rate m-binary turbo-codes to high-order modulation schemes and analyzed performance estimation of bit-interleaved turbo-coded modulation at very low error rates. In 2004, she joined Universidad San Pablo-CEU, in Madrid (Spain), as an Assistant Professor in Telecommunication Engineering.

Since 2006, she is with the Lab-STICC Laboratory in Université de Bretagne Sud (France), where she is currently an Associate Professor. She has worked on PN sequence synchronization in Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receivers as a contribution to an FP6 EU research project co-funded by the European GNSS Supervisory Authority (GSA). Currently, her research interests include Advanced Channel Coding such as Turbo-Codes, LDPC Codes and Cortex Codes, focusing on algorithm-architecture adequacy and decoder designs. She is also interested in Neural Coding and Neuromorphic Computing & Design.
