- Polar codes represent an emerging correcting codes with power to approach the capacity of a discrete memoryless channel. However, the decoding performance of polar codes with traditional successive cancellation (SC) algorithm cannot match that of the low-density parity-check or Turbo codes. In this paper, a modified successive cancellation stack (MSCS) polar decoder is proposed. Unlike the original SC stack polar (SCS) decoders, we propose a modified path that can significantly reduce latency of SCS decoders. Simulation results in the binary-input additive white Gaussian noise channel show that modified algorithm has the slightly performance as the SCS algorithm. Moreover, the time and space complexity of the MSCS decoder is much lower than that of the SCS and can be very close to that of the SC in the high SNR regime.
