Statistical BER Analysis of Concatenated FEC in Multi-Part Links

DesignCon 2023 Best Paper Award Winner

This paper proposes a model that can serve as a tool for evaluating FEC choices in 200+ Gb/s applications. It allows the comparison of the effect of different inner/outer codes and inner-FEC interleaving schemes on post-FEC BER. It can also be used as a tool for system-level transceiver design, allowing designers to see the impact of design choices on the post-FEC BER efficiently.
