Abstract

This article relates to a high-speed length buffer unit for buffering and converting between fixed length words and variable length words. The fixed length word size n is given, and the maximum length of the variable length word is m bits. In the applications of interest, up to one maximum length variable length word is handled in one clock period (cycle).
