%X By analyzing the structure of Low-Density Parity-Check (LDPC) code check matrix in LTE-Advanced standard, this paper proposed a low-cost encoder with high input packet throughput on Quasi Cyclic-LDPC (QC-LDPC) code. With exploiting the number of null matrices in the mother parity check matrix, the whole parity check matrix could be partitioned into an array of block matrices, where each block matrix was either a null sub-matrix or a cyclic shift of an identity sub-matrix, and then it encoded serially. The experimental results show that the proposed encoder's coding time is the same as 32% of the ideal time and the resources consumption is the same as 33% of the ideal situation within the analogous methods. This result achieves the balance between coding time and resources consumption, which means the designed encoder meets the LTE-Advanced standard: low cost with high transmission. In addition, by changing the parameters in the ROM which saves the check matrix, the proposed encoder is flexible to implement the encoding of LDPC code with different code length or rate.
