INTRODUCTION
The AHA4011C is a single chip integrated
circuit that implements a high speed Reed-Solomon
Forward Error Correction algorithm. The
AHA4011C is a member of the AHA PerFEC
family of high speed forward error correction (FEC)
devices conforming to the Intelsat IESS-308
specification.
The device supports several programmable
parameters, including, block size, error threshold,
number of check bytes, order of output and mode of
operations. Shortened blocks are supported without
requirement of zero padding typically required in
Reed Solomon decoders. The data input port is used
to initialize the programmable parameters and the
two on-chip buffers are used to input and output
data. Discontinuities in data flow may be controlled
by dedicated control pins.
High operating frequency, input and output data
rate flexibility, low processing latency and various
programmable parameters make this device ideal
for many applications including: DTV, DBS,
ADSL, Satellite Communications, ISDN, High
Performance Modems and networks.
This specification provides full electrical and
mechanical information to help a system engineer
develop a system using AHA4011C. This
document contains descriptions on correction
terms, pinout, functions and features, DC and AC
characteristics, package and mechanical
specifications, ordering information and Related
Technical Publications. Software simulation of the
RS code as implemented in the device is also
available. Please contact AHA or its authorized
sales representatives worldwide for copies of
Related Technical Publications and software
simulation.

CONVENTIONS, NOTATIONS AND
DEFINITIONS
­ Certain signals are logically true at a voltage
defined as "low" in the data sheet. All such signals
have an "N" appended to the end of the signal
name. For example, RSTN and DSON.
­ "Signal assertion" means the output signal is
logically true.
­ Hex values are defined with a prefix of "0x", such
as "0x10".
­ A range of signal names is denoted by a set of
colons between the numbers. Most significant bit
is always shown first, followed by least
significant bit. For example, DI[7:0] represents
Data Input Bus 7 through 0.
­ A product of two variables is expressed with an
"×", for example, N × C
i
represents Codeword
Length multiplied by Input clocks/byte.
­ Mega Bytes per second is referred to as MBytes/
sec or MB/sec.
­ Channel Rate is defined as transfer rate including
user data and error correction check bytes.
