2017 Joint Convention, the Hokkaido Chapters of the Institutes of Electrical and Information Engineers

Mr. Watanabe presented his paper at 2017 Joint Convention, the Hokkaido Chapters of the Institutes of Electrical and Information Engineers, which was held at Future University Hakodate on Oct 28th-28th. In this paper, we presented an implementation approach to avoid memory conflicts of parallel processing to realize high throughput LDPC decoding.
