NAND Flash controller companies are licensing ECC Tek’s programmable binary BCH ECC. Binary BCH codes are recommended by the major NAND Flash manufacturers.
ECC Tek’s binary BCH designs for Flash are fast becoming the de facto standard in the industry and allow customers to vary the number of bits corrected and the page size, implement a variable or fixed delay, and minimize the gate count or latency. Designs can be developed to correct more than 100 bits.
Advanced ECC Concepts
ECC Tek has invented and patented methods and apparatus for encoding and decoding Reed-Solomon codes in a parallel and pipelined fashion. This technology can be used to create fault-tolerant hard disk drives (Two-Dimensional Reed-Solomon HDDs) and fault-tolerant solid state disks (Two-Dimensional Reed-Solomon SSDs).
