Array-based non-binary (NB) low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes are attractive in practice for their advantages in implementation and performance. However, existing construction of array-based NB LDPC codes is only with the prime number cases. In this Letter, the authors extend the array-based construction to composite numbers to give an explicit construction of structured array-based NB LDPC codes with column weights three, four, and five. The resulting codes have girth at least six. The simulation results show that the proposed structured codes perform as well as the random codes constructed by progressive edge-growth algorithm, when decoded with the Q-ary sum product algorithm and the low-complexity weighted bit-reliability-based decoding algorithm.
