A family of mB(m+1)B binary, nonalphabetic, balanced line codes is presented that is suitable for high bit rate (>or=135 Mb/s) optical fiber transmission due to its relatively simple encoding and decoding rules. Here, B represents a block of m bits, where m is an odd number. The coding, decoding, and bit error rate (BER) performance of the codes are discussed. Statistical and spectral analysis for the specific case in which the number of bits, m, equals seven, is presented. This makes possible a detailed comparison of the proposed code with conventional 7B8B codes.
