Forward Error Correction (FEC) - IP Core

Forward-error correction (FEC) improves system capacity by permitting high data rates within the communications link while providing improved transmission power efficiency. Reed-Solomon and Turbo Coded are two examples of FEcs.

At SiliconPro we developed a series of very strong FECs based on Low Density Parity Check (LDPC) algorithms. LDPC codes, were first proposed by Robert Gallager in his 1960 doctoral dissertation. These LDPC codes have resulted in FEC solutions that extremely powerful. However, the effective ASIC implementation of the LDPC Decoder and Encoder remains was a big challenge and a crucial issue in determining how wel we can exploit the attractive merits of LDPC codes in real applications.

At SiliconPro we tackled many of these ASIC architectural challenges and introduced a series of FECs based on Low Density Parity Check (LDPC) algorithms.

Reed Solomon: is a classic FEC, which is used in many communications standard. We claim to have the smallest RS core available.
