FPGA Implementation of Network Coding Decoder
Network coding enhances performance of multi-cast network system, e.g., P2P (Peer-to-Peer) system. The receivers in the network that use network coding technique have to decode the received messages which are encoded by intermediate nodes as well as sender node. Hence, decoding operations of network coding system are more complex than those of normal network system; therefore, performance of decoding operations has a significant influence on performance of the entire network system. In this paper, the authors address the issues regarding implementation of FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array)-based acceleration engines of Gaussian eliminations on finite Galois field.
