Error Coding for Engineers provides a useful tool for practicing engineers, students, and researchers, focusing on the applied rather than the theoretical. It describes the processes involved in coding messages in such a way that, if errors occur during transmission or storage, they are detected and, if necessary, corrected. Very little knowledge beyond a basic understanding of binary manipulation and Boolean algebra is assumed, making the subject accessible to a broad readership including non-specialists. The approach is tutorial: numerous examples, illustrations, and tables are included, along with over 30 pages of hands-on exercises and solutions. Error coding is essential in many modern engineering applications. Engineers involved in communications design, DSP-based applications, IC design, protocol design, storage solutions, and memory product design are among those who will find the book to be a valuable reference. Error Coding for Engineers is also suitable as a text for basic and advanced university courses in communications and engineering.Some systems calculate the vertical check by adding value of each character and discarding the higher order bits of the ... 3.2 The Cyclic Redundancy Check Basic horizontal parity incurs an overhead of about 11% of the channel bandwidth.
