In this paper, we present a high throughput and low latency LDPC (low-density parity-check) decoder implementation on GPUs (graphics processing units). The existing GPU-based LDPC decoder implementations suffer from low throughput and long latency, which prevent them from being used in practical SDR (software-defined radio) systems. To overcome this problem, we present optimization techniques for a parallel LDPC decoder including algorithm optimization, fully coalesced memory access, asynchronous data transfer and multi-stream concurrent kernel execution for modern GPU architectures. Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed LDPC decoder achieves 316 Mbps (at 10 iterations) peak throughput on a single GPU. The decoding latency, which is much lower than that of the state of the art, varies from 0.207 ms to 1.266 ms for different throughput requirements from 62.5 Mbps to 304.16 Mbps. When using four GPUs concurrently, we achieve an aggregate peak throughput of 1.25 Gbps (at 10 iterations).

Free GPU computing nodes at hgpu.org

Registered users can now run their OpenCL application at hgpu.org. We provide 1 minute of computer time per each run on two nodes with two AMD and one nVidia graphics processing units, correspondingly. There are no restrictions on the number of starts.

The platforms are

Node 1
  • GPU device 0: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5870 2GB, 850MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6970 2GB, 880MHz
  • CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 @ 2.8GHz 1055T
  • RAM: 12GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 13.1
  • SDK: AMD APP SDK 2.9
Node 2
  • GPU device 0: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 7970 3GB, 1000MHz
  • GPU device 1: nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB, 822MHz
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.4GHz
  • RAM: 16GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 12.2
  • SDK: nVidia CUDA Toolkit 6.0.1, AMD APP SDK 2.9

Completed OpenCL project should be uploaded via User dashboard (see instructions and example there), compilation and execution terminal output logs will be provided to the user.
