Abstract—Forward Error Correction (FEC) now plays an important role in many wireless transceivers because it helps increase link reliability and lower required transmit power. Expected features of a FEC solution are scalability, high coding-gain, low-complexity and transmit power efficiency. In this paper, we proposed a multi-mode error-correction solution which is based on split-concatenation of low-constraint convolutional code and Truncated-Iteration Layered-Decoding LDPC (TILD-LDPC) block code. The proposed FEC solution can offer many operation modes with different levels of error-correction performance and transmit power. Moreover, besides guaranteeing good BER performances, the proposed FEC approach is also a low-complexity error-correction solution by implementing low-complexity version of convolutional code and LDPC. From experimental results and theoretic arguments, we found that the proposed FEC solution is suitable to apply for Wireless Sensor Nodes.
