This paper presents an area-efficient architecture of arbitrary error correction Bose-Chaudhuri-Hocquenghem codec for NAND flash memory. By factorizing the generator polynomial into several minimal polynomials and utilizing linear feedback shift registers based on minimal polynomials, our reconfigurable design cannot only support multiple error correcting capabilities at a few extra cost, but also merge the encoder and syndrome calculator for efficiently reducing hardware complexity. After being implemented in CMOS 65-nm technology, the test chip supporting t = 1 -24 bits can achieve 1.33-Gb/s measured throughput with 73k gate-count while another design supporting t = 60 -84 bits can provide 1.60-Gb/s synthesized throughput with 168.6k gate-count.
