Applications of error control coding in mobile communications are considered. Statistical information required to choose a proper coding scheme to combat bursty errors is discussed. A consideration of implementation aspects such as cost, flexibility, reliability, size, and power consumption leads to a universal Reed-Solomon decoder structure suitable for mobile communications. A fast microprocessor-based decoding algorithm for high-rate Reed-Solomon codes is introduced to decrease the error location calculation time and hence increase the decoding speed
