Energy-Efficient Soft-Decision LDPC FEC for Long-Haul Optical Communication
Paper in proceedings, 2015

We present forward error correction systems based on a low complexity LDPC decoding algorithm and randomly-structured LDPC codes. Simulation and ASIC synthesis results show throughput and net coding gain sufficient for long-haul applications, with greatly reduced energy consumption.
