Polar coding and sparse code multiple access (SCMA) are key technologies for 5G mobile communication, the joint design of them has a great significance to improve the overall performance of the transmitter-receiver symmetric wireless communication system. In this paper, we firstly propose a pruning iterative joint detection and decoding algorithm (PI-JDD) based on the confidence stability of resource nodes. Branches to be updated are dynamically pruned to avoid redundant iterative, which is

Then, to further reduce the bit error rate (BER) of the receiver, a cyclic redundancy check (CRC) termination mechanism is added at the end of each joint iteration to avoid the convergence error caused by decoding deviation. Simulation results show that the addition of an early stopping criterion can achieve a remarkable performance gain compared with the S-JIDD algorithm. More importantly, the combined algorithm of the two proposed schemes can reduce the computational complexity while achieving better error performance.
