Reed-Solomon Lab

Reed-Solomon is an forward error correction (FEC) algorithm that enables the correction of errors injected into a data stream from a noisy channel. A data stream is broken up into blocks (called data packets) of the same number of bytes (each byte is called a data symbol). These data packets are then passed to the Reed-Solomon encoder, which adds several bytes (called check symbols) to the end of each data packet. Together, the data and check symbols make up a codeword. In this lab you will build an FEC system using the Reed-Solomon compiler MegaCore function and the APEX DSP development board.
