I know I will have a 10% error rate, but this errors are truly random. I was using solomon reed codes, but if a single bit in the code or parity word is bad the whole word becomes useless. If I have eight bytes of data and eight bytes of parity codes then 5 bit error can make my whole message bad. Is there a better algorithm for cases like this?
I am trying to send packets of 128bit or 16bytes. 1/2 is data 1/2 is parity. I am having trouble figuring out how LDPC would be more beneficial.
If I have the same 16bytes with 8 bytes of parity and 8 bytes of data how ldpc be better? For example suppose with my example I have 1 bit errors in 5 different bytes. This would make SR unable to decode my data. Would it be the same LDPC or would it be able to recover that. From would I understand from LDPC it would still be unable to decode it.
