Impact of Forward Error Correction on Energy Consumption of VCSEL-based Transmitters
Paper in proceedings, 2015

We present an analysis of the effect of FEC on energy consumption of VCSEL based transmitters for short-range optical links. We show that a low-complexity FEC can reduce the overall energy consumption of the transmitter.
