Error-correcting codes are ubiquitous. They are adopted in almost every modern digital communication and storage system, such as wireless communications, optical communications, Flash memories, computer hard drives, sensor networks and deep-space probing. New-generation and emerging applications demand codes with better error-correcting capability. On the other hand, the design and implementation of those high-gain error-correcting codes pose many challenges.

It is difficult to follow the vast amount of literature to develop efficient very large scale integrated (VLSI) implementations of en/decoders for state-of-the-art error-correcting codes. The goal of this book is to provide a comprehensive and systematic review of available techniques ...
