In this paper a modified Offset Min-Sum decoding algorithm for Low-Density Parity Check Codes is presented. In this modified algorithm, the offset factor in the original Offset Min-Sum algorithm is adjusted iteratively with the assistance of the check-node computation outputs of the Normalized Min-Sum algorithm. As a result, the offset factor in our modified algorithm can be calculated adaptively and more efficiently according to the previous decoding procedure, which can minimize the decoding

The simulation results show that, compared with the original Offset Min-Sum decoding algorithm, our modified algorithm can achieve noticeable performance improvement with minor extra hardware complexity. For example, when BER is 10 5, our algorithm can achieve 0.1dB and 0.2dB decoding gain over Offset Min-Sum algorithm for regular and irregular LDPC codes respectively.
