This paper presents a two-iteration concatenated Bose-Chaudhuri-Hocquenghem (BCH) code and its high-speed low-complexity two-parallel decoder architecture for 100 Gb/s optical communications. The proposed architecture features a very high data processing rate as well as excellent error correction capability. A low-complexity syndrome computation architecture and a high-speed dual-processing pipelined simplified inversonless Berlekamp-Massey (Dual-pSiBM) key equation solver architecture were

The proposed two-iteration concatenated BCH code structure with block interleaving methods allows the decoder to achieve 8.91dB of net coding gain performance at 10 -15 decoder output bit error rate to compensate for serious transmission quality degradation. Thus, it has potential applications in next generation forward error correction schemes for 100 Gb/s optical communications.
