Introduction

This website presents my views on error-correcting codes (ECC) and their implementation.

We have decided to license all of ECC Tek's “know-how” and ECC CAD software “tools”.  Know-how is the most valuable asset ECC Tek owns, and the ECC CAD software tools developed by ECC Tek allow anyone with the know-how to quickly develop any Reed-Solomon (RS) or Binary BCH (BBCH) encoder and decoder to operate at any performance level with a variable level of parallelism which can input and output a variable number of symbols (or bits) simultaneously.  The licensed know-how and tools will equip every licensee with the ability to quickly develop any RS or BBCH encoder and decoder they may need now or any other time in the future.

 If you are interested in licensing ECC Tek’s know-how and tools, please contact me.

 I have been involved with error-correcting codes for more than 40 years - since 1973 - and have developed and licensed many ECC designs.  High-performance, parallel Reed-Solomon (PRS) designs I designed are currently being implemented by NASA, numerous other space companies and are also being used by the European Space Agency.  Other designs such as a programmable RS design for the IEEE 802.16 wireless standard (cellular backhaul microwave application), RS for DVB (Digital Video Broadcasting) and many binary BCH designs for MLC NAND Flash are currently in mass production and millions of copies have been sold.  Every company that has licensed designs from ECC Tek has been pleased with the results.  The performance of our designs often exceed our customer's requirements and expectations.
