Parify Bits A simple method of detecting errors is based on the principle that if
each bit pattern being manipulated has an odd number of 1s and a pattern with ...
This is easily obtained by first adding an additional bit, called a parity bit, to each
In an even parity system, each pattern is designed to contain an even number of
1s, and thus an error is signaled by the occurrence of a pattern with an odd
number of 1s. Today it is not unusual to find parity bits being used in a computer's
Using gates, design a circuit with four inputs and one output such that the output
is 1 or 0 depending on whether the four-bit input pattern has odd or even parity,
respectively. What would be the encoded version of the message xxyyyx xxy ...
