Paper Abstract

This article introduces a lossless encoding scheme for interleaved input from a fixed number of binary sources, each one characterized by a known probability value. The algorithm achieves compression performance close to the entropy, providing very fast encoding and decoding speed. The algorithm can efficiently benefit from independent parallel decoding units, and it is demonstrated to have significant advantages in hardware implementations over previous technologies.
