Abstract

In this paper, we investigate the bit error rate (BER) performance of a concatenated low density parity check (LDPC) encoded orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) system on color image transmission. In FEC concatenated channel coding, the OFDM wireless communication system incorporates 1/2-rated convolution encoder under various digital modulations (QPSK, 8PSK, QAM, 8QAM, 16QAM and 32QAM) over an additative white gaussian noise (AWGN) and other fading (Raleigh and Rician) channels. Computer simulation results on BER demonstrate that the LDPC encoded OFDM system outperforms with QAM modulation technique as compared to other digital modulation scheme and the system is highly effective to combat inherent interferences under Rayleigh and Rician fading channels. The transmitted color image is found to have retrieved effectively under noisy and fading situations with implementation of sum-product algorithm, an effective iterative based LDPC decoding scheme. It has also been anticipated that the performance of the communication system degrades with the increasing of noise power.
