Today, Forward Error-Correcting (FEC) codes are mainly implemented in hardware, and many believe that their complexity prohibit their software implementation. This paper presents in detail how the performances of a software implementantion can be signiicantly improved. Diierent levels of optimization which are independent of the working environment are presented and discussed. The coding through-put of 100 Mbps on an UltraSparc 1 shows that FEC codes can be easily added to multimedia… CONTINUE READING
