Forward Error Correction
  • A system of error control for data transmission wherein the receiving device has the capability to detect and correct any character or code block that contains fewer than a predetermined number of symbols in error.
  • Note: FEC is accomplished by adding bits to each transmitted character or code block using a predetermined algorithm. See also binary digit, block code, character, code, convolutional code, data transmission, error, error control, error-detecting code, information feedback.
