  title={Efficient VLSI Architectures for Error-Correcting Coding},
  author={Tong Zhang and Keshab K. Parhi and Georgios G. Giannakis},
This thesis is devoted to several efficient VLSI architecture design issues in errorcorrecting coding, including finite field arithmetic, (Generalized) Low-Density ParityCheck (LDPC) codes, and Reed-Solomon codes. A systematic low-complexity bit-parallel finite field multiplier design approach is proposed. This design approach is applicable to GF (2m) constructed by arbitrary irreducible polynomials. It effectively exploits the spatial correlation in the bit-parallel finite field multiplication… CONTINUE READING
