    I'm currently designing à Reed-Solomon decoder and I need to implement
    a Galois multiplier optimized for area..

    Now it takes 50 Logic Elements on Cyclone Altera and for the
    Berlekamp-Massey alogorithm I need 6 t + 2 multiplier (t=16) so I need
    4900 Logic Elements only for the multiplier !!!

    Do you know if there is a good paper for optimized area on altera
    target ?

    My VHDL model have 64 AND and a few XOR !!!

    Thanks for good ideas...

    google might be a good place to start.

  3. How big (# bits) are your Galois elements?
