Abstract

The design of the codec for the ATCS radio data link is considered. The code is defined. The encoding algorithm, the decoding algorithm, and Galois field arithmetic are discussed. Implementation of the Reed-Solomon codec as a stand-alone system in order to provide a possibility of real-time bit-rate measurement is discussed. The implementation of this codec using three different 8-b and 16-b microprocessors/microcomputers is described. Their complexity and throughput are discussed
