1. A method of encoding information, by a transmitting device using a parity check matrix of a low-density parity-check code, for transmission over a communication channel, the method comprising:determining, by the transmitting device, the parity check matrix of dimensions at least 7Z rows and 17Z columns comprising 7 rows and 17 columns of Z×Z-sized submatrices that are indexed by submatrix row index m (where 0?m?6) and submatrix column index n (where 0?n?16), wherein Z is a non-zero integer, and wherein:

for submatrix row index m=0 and for submatrix column indices n={0, 1, 2, 3, 6, 9, 10, 11}, each submatrix at submatrix index (m, n) is obtained based on a respective value among {145, 131, 71, 21, 23, 112, 1, 0},

for submatrix row index m=1 and for submatrix column indices n={0, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12}, each submatrix at submatrix index (m, n) is obtained based on a respective value among {142, 174, 183, 27, 96, 23, 9, 167, 0, 0},

for submatrix row index m=2 and for submatrix column indices n={0, 1, 3, 4, 8, 10, 12, 13}, each submatrix at submatrix index (m, n) is obtained based on a respective value among {74, 31, 3, 53, 155, 0, 0, 0},

for submatrix row index m=3 and for submatrix column indices n={1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 13}, each submatrix at submatrix index (m, n) is equal to a circularly column-shifted identity matrix of size Z×Z that is obtained based on a respective value among {239, 171, 95, 110, 159, 199, 43, 75, 1, 0},

for submatrix row index m=4 and for submatrix column indices n={0, 1, 11, 14}, each submatrix at submatrix index (m, n) is obtained based on a respective value among {29, 140, 180, 0},

for submatrix row index m=5 and for submatrix column indices n={0, 1, 5, 7, 11, 15}, each submatrix at submatrix index (m, n) is obtained based on a respective value among {121, 41, 169, 88, 207, 0}, and

for submatrix row index m=6 and for submatrix column indices n={0, 5, 7, 9, 11, 16}, each submatrix at submatrix index (m, n) is obtained based on a respective value among {137, 72, 172, 124, 56, 0},

generating encoded data, by the transmitting device, based on encoding the information with the determined parity check matrix; and

transmitting, by a transceiver of the transmitting device, the encoded data over the communication channel.
