Hardent’s ECC/Reed-Solomon FEC IP portfolio targets a wide range of applications on both FPGA and ASIC technology. In addition to IP cores targeted at specific applications, we also offer customized Reed-Solomon or BCH encoder and decoder IP cores based on customer-specific parameters. As your IP provider, we will leverage our extensive system-level design expertise to deliver a complete IP solution targeted to meet the unique requirements of your application.
Error-Correcting Code (ECC) and Forward Error Correction (FEC) are used in information systems to detect and correct errors that may be introduced in a noisy or unreliable data channel environment. Although both ECC and FEC mean the same thing, the term FEC is normally used in data transmission systems, while ECC is used for storage and other types of systems.
ECC/FEC is made possible by adding redundant information to the data at the encoder side (or the transmitter side). The decoder (also referred to as the receiver side) then uses the redundant information to detect and correct the errors that may have been introduced in the data.
