Protograph construction methods for generating convolutional LDPC code matrices are disclosed in which multi-equation problems of girth maximization are reduced or replaced using other techniques including (with limitation): finding base matrices with a unique set of non-repeating distance parameters, finding the minimum largest such distance parameter among solution-set matrices, and quasi-cyclic lifting of the generated convolutional LDPC code matrix. 4-cycles and select (avoidable) 6-cycles are thereby removed from the resulting convolutional LDPC code matrix, thereby resulting in significant performance gains.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
