Progressive-edge-growth (PEG) algorithm [3]-[5] is known to construct low-density parity-check codes at finite block lengths with very good performance. In this paper, we propose a very simple modification to PEG construction for irregular codes, which considerably improves the performance at high signal-to-noise (SNR) ratios with no sacrifice in low-SNR performance.
