Abstract In this work, given n, p > 0, efficient encoding/decoding algorithms are presented for mapping arbitrary data to and from n × n binary arrays in which the weight of every row and every column is at most pn. Such constraint, referred as p-bounded- weight-constraint, is crucial for reducing the parasitic currents in the crossbar resistive memory arrays, and has also been proposed for certain applications of the holographic data storage. While low- complexity designs have been proposed in the literature for only the case p = 1/2, this work provides efficient coding methods that work for arbitrary values of p. The coding rate of our proposed encoder approaches the channel capacity for all p.
