Design of Energy-Efficient High-Speed Links via Forward Error Correction

Abstract

In this brief, we show that forward error correction (FEC) can reduce power in high-speed serial links. This is achieved by trading off the FEC coding gain with specifications on transmit swing, analog-to-digital converter (ADC) precision, jitter tolerance, receive amplification, and by enabling higher signal constellations. For a 20-in FR4 link carrying 10… (More)
