Press & News
This press release provides information about the finalization of the project.
The EPIC project sought to overhaul forward error correction algorithms to have the capacity to handle the extreme speeds of future communication. And while the consortium achieved their goals on a technical level, what were some of the impacts on science, economy and the European society? Watch the video to find out.
Podcast with InterDigital
The EPIC H2020 project is winding down. Partner, Onur Sahin reports all is well; goals have been met, demonstrators are working and there has been a great sense of cooperation among partners. Listen here by clicking the link below or go to wherever you get your podcasts and search for Euvation.
Podcast with Creonic GmbH
In this episode we speak with Jhon Jimenez and Timo Lehnigk-Emden from Creonic about project completion and what practical results can be observed and applied. Listen here by clicking the link below or go to wherever you get your podcasts and search for Euvation.
European Commission's Innovation Radar published EPIC results
Some of the innovations developed in the EPIC project have been analysed by the European Commission's Innovation Radar:
- Improved turbo code design, simplified decoder algorithms and architectures for very high throughput applications (TB)
- ASIC design for terabit-per-second forward error correction coding scheme based on polar codes (POL)
- Enabling low-latency Tbps communication by introducing a frame level interleaved LDPC decoder (IMEC)
- High throughput forward error correction architectures for next generation communication systems (TUKL)
- Improved Terrabit Decoders for ASIC and FPGA technologies (CRE)
- Multi-dimensional differential-triangle set codes to achieve practical >100Gbps throughput (IDCC)
Podcast with IMT Atlantique
Catherine Douillard, Stefan Weithoffer and Charbel Abdel Nour all from IMT Atlantique talk about EPIC in the latest podcast. Listen here by clicking the link below or go to wherever you get your podcasts and search for Euvation.
We used the time in home office to create a public promotion video of the EPIC project.

Quote from Thomas Kuerner, Chair of IEEE 802.15 THz IG: "Next generation FEC and its practical implantation is very essential for future THz Communications enabling ultra-high throughput wireless systems. EPIC has recognized the necessity of fundamental FEC technology for THz and is an important contributor in this area"
