This paper discusses the use of programmable active memory systems for implementing adaptive coding schemes on time varying digital channels. By using a codec architecture that accommodates several completely different codes, it may be possible to develop very efficient coding schemes. This paper seeks to demonstrate that block codes can be efficiently implemented using a programmable active memory system called DECPeRLe-1. The efficient implementation of convolutional codes in this system has been demonstrated. The successful implementation of a decoder for the (15, 9) Reed-Solomon code, and the current state of development of a decoder for the (255, 223) Reed-Solomon code are described in this paper.
