Acceleration of Error Correcting Coding in GPU

Most of the processing of the IBB modem for satellite telemetry reception of Antwerp Space happens in software. New error correcting codes require up to 50 iterations for decoding cycles per frame. This is challenging for the generic CPU, but might be interesting to off-load it to a GPU. The goal of this thesis is to investigate the feasibility to port LDPC decoding to GPU, make a prototype and run benchmarks.
