1/3 FEC Definition


A type of forward error correction (FEC) used in Bluetooth networks.The Bluetooth packet header is 16 bits in length, but is repeated three times to ensure that there are no errors in header transmission. As a result, the header consumes a total of 54 bits.This approach is overhead-intensive, but reliable. See also Bluetooth, FEC, header, overhead, and packet.
