As an effective error correction technology, the Low Density Parity Check Code (LDPC) has been researched and applied by many scholars. Meanwhile, LDPC codes have some prominent performances, which involves close to the Shannon limit, achieving a higher bit rate and a fast decoding. However, whether these excellent characteristics are suitable for the resource-constrained Wireless Sensor Network (WSN), it seems to be seldom concerned. In this article, we review the LDPC code’s structure, and them classify and summarize the LDPC codes’ construction and decoding algorithms, finally, analyze the applications of LDPC code for WSN. We believe that our contributions will be able to facilitate the application of LDPC code in WSN.
