Low Differential Parity Checks

A Python wrapper around the AFF3CT [1] project, transferring the LDPC [2] implementations to the Hermes forward error correction pipeline structure.

  • num_iterations (int) – Number of iterations during decoding.

  • h_source_path (str) – Location of the H matrix savefile.

  • g_save_path (str) – Location of the generated G matrix savefile.

  • enable_syndrome_checking (bool) – Enable premature decoding stop if syndroms indicate a likely success.

  • min_num_iterations (int) – Minimum number of decoding iterations when syndrome checking is enabled.

decode(self: hermespy.fec.aff3ct.ldpc.LDPCCoding, arg0: numpy.ndarray[numpy.int32]) numpy.ndarray[numpy.int32]
