Paper Abstract

As the error probability is inherently high in the high-density optical storage system, it is very important to encode the data to ensure the data integrality before recording them on the disc. As the performance of the Reed-Solomon (RS) code is perfect for the applications where burst errors and random errors exist together, RS code is adopted as the error control scheme in our design of the multi-wavelength optical storage system. Since field programmable gate array (FPGA) is reconfigurable, the FPGA-based encoding circuit in the multi-wavelength optical storage system provides a flexible and cost efficient platform for the evaluation and verification of various error control schemes. The design and implementation of RS codes on FPGA are presented in this paper. The experiment result shows that it is practical to be used in the multi-wavelength optical storage system.
