This paper presents a novel framework, which enables a design of rateless codes for binary input additive white Gaussian noise (BIAWGN) channels, using the ripple-based approach known from the works for the binary erasure channel (BEC). We reveal that several aspects of the analytical results from the BEC also hold in BIAWGN channels. The presented framework is applied in a code design example, which shows promising results compared to existing work. In particular it shows a great robustness towards variations in the signal-to-noise power ratio (SNR), contrary to existing codes.
