Abstract

Multilevel coding (MLC) provides a low-complexity encoding scheme for lattices obtained via construction D. On the other hand, multistage decoding is also a practical decoding scheme for MLC provided that the underlying error correcting codes are capacity achieving, which requires using a powerful soft decoder for each code. In this article, we propose an approximation of the log-likelihood ratio (LLR) used for the soft decoding of the different error correcting codes employed in the lattice construction. This approximation is based on the von Mises distribution and achieves,with lower complexity, the same error rate performance obtained with the exact LLR calculation.
