  • Patent number: 11463103
    Abstract: The present technology relates to a transmission device, a transmission method, a reception device, and a reception method for securing good communication quality in data transmission using an LDPC code. LDPC coding for information bits with an information length K=N×r is performed on the basis of an extended parity check matrix having rows and columns extended by a predetermined puncture length L with respect to a parity check matrix of an LDPC code with a code length N of 69120 bits and a coding rate r of 14/16, so that an extended LDPC code having parity bits with a parity length M=N+L?K is generated. A head of the information bits of the extended LDPC code is punctured by L, so that a punctured LDPC code with the code length N of 69120 bits and the coding rate r is generated.
