An efficient high throughput BCH module for multi-bits error correction mechanism on hardware platform

Rohith Puttaraju, Ramesha Muniyappa


The bose-chaudhuri-hocquenghem (BCH) codes are a cyclic error correction codes (ECC) class. The BCH is constructed by using a polynomial over the Galois field. The BCH codes can detect and correct the multi-bits with an easy decoding mechanism. The BCH codes are used in most of the storage device's cryptography, disk drives, and satellite applications. This manuscript presents an efficient high-throughput BCH module with an encoding and decoding mechanism for multi-bit corrections. The BCH code of (15, k) is used to construct the encoder and decoder architectures. The BCH encoder decoder (ED) module with single error correction (SEC), double error correction (DEC), and triple-error correction (TEC) are discussed in detail. The BCH encoder module uses a linear feedback shift register (LFSR). The BCH decoder with SEC and DEC is constructed using the syndrome generator module (SGM) and chien search module (CSM). The BCH decoder with TEC is designed using SGM, inversion-based berlekamp-massey-algorithm (BMA), and CSMs. The BCH-ED module with SEC, DEC, and TEC utilizes <1 % chip area on Artix-7 FPGA. The BCH-ED with SEC, DEC, and TEC achieves a throughput of 7.13 Gbps, 1.2 Gbps, and 0.803 Gbps, respectively. Lastly, the BCH module is compared with existing BCH approaches with better improvement in chip area, frequency, and throughput parameters.
