In this paper, a bit-mapping scheme is proposed for partial Chase combining in LDPC-coded systems. Contrary to the previously known bit mapping that assigns the information bits to more reliable channels, the proposed mapping assigns the codeword bits of irregular LDPC codes to distinct Gaussian channels by considering the characteristics of LDPC codes and channels. The recursion equation for partial Chase combining is derived by using the density evolution technique, based on it, the best bit mapping among the various bit-mapping schemes is derived, and the validity of them is confirmed through simulation.
