Concatenated zigzag (CZ) codes are classified as one kind of parallel-concatenated codes with powerful performance and low complexity. This kind of codes has flexible implementation methods and a good application prospect. We propose a modified turbo-type decoder and adaptive extrinsic information scaling method based on the Max-Log-APP (MLA) algorithm, which can provide a performance improvement also under the relatively low decoding complexity. Simulation results show that the proposed method can effectively help the sub-optimal MLA algorithm to approach the optimal performance. Some contrasts with low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes are also presented in this paper.
