The Reed-Solomon code is a versatile channel code pervasively used for communication and storage systems. The bit-serial Reed-Solomon encoder has a simple structure, although it is somewhat difficult to understand the algorithm without considerable theoretical background. Some professionals and students, not able to understand the algorithm thoroughly, might need to implement the bit-serial encoder for themselves. In this letter, a step-by-step method is presented for the implementation of the bit-serial encoder even without understanding the internal algorithm, which would be helpful for VHDL, DSP, and simulation programming.
