Stochastic EXIT Design for Low-Latency Short-Block LDPC Codes


We introduce a stochastic version of extrinsic information transfer (EXIT) chart which accounts for dispersion in finite-length LDPC decoding. The proposed approach can design short LDPC codes systematically, achieving about 1.2 dB gain over recently proposed scattered EXIT design.

Topics presented include recent advances in quantum signal processing, channel coding design, nano-optic power splitter, and deep learning-based integrated photonics. In addition, Dr. Kojima gave an invited workshop talk on deep learning-based nano-photonic device optimization.

        OFC is the largest global conference and exhibition for optical communications and networking professionals. The program is comprehensive from research to marketplace, from components to systems and networks and from technical sessions to the exhibition. For over 40 years, OFC has drawn attendees from all corners of the globe to meet and greet, teach and learn, make connections and move the industry forward. The five-day technical conference features peer reviewed presentations and more than 180 invited speakers, the thought leaders in the industry presenting the highlights of emerging technologies. Additional technical programming throughout the week includes special symposia, special sessions, in-depth tutorials, workshops, panels and the thought-provoking rump session.
