Error Detection basics

This page describes error detection basics and types of error detection techniques which include parity and CRC methods.It covers CRC techniques such as modulo 2 arithmetic, polynomial and digital logic methods.

Error Detection process

As shown in the figure, k bits are passed to the encoder block to generate parity bits. This parity bits are added to input data bits and are transmitted as n bits. Hence n-k are parity bits. This happens at the transmitter.

As shown in the figure at the receiver, parity bits along with data bits of total length n bits are passed to the encoder. From the data part crc is again computed and will be compared with the received CRC bits and based on this data is corrupted or not is decided. This process is called error detection.
