A (204, 188) Reed-Solomon decoder for DVB application is presented. The RS decoder features an area-efficient Key Equation Solver using a novel decomposed Euclidean algorithm. We implement the RS decoder using 0.35μm CMOS 1P4M standard cells, where the total gate count is about 16K ∼ 17K. Test results show that the RS decoder chip can run up to 87MHz.
