In this paper, an efficient partial incremental redundancy (P-IR) scheme is proposed for an H-ARQ using block type low density parity check (B-LDPC) codes. The performance of the proposed P-IR scheme is evaluated in an HSDPA system using IEEE 802.16e B-LDPC codes. Simulation results show that the proposed H-ARQ using IEEE 802.16e B-LDPC codes outperforms the H-ARQ using 3GPP turbo codes.
