Parity and CRC

  1. Oct 5, 2009 #1

    Recently I am studying on parity and CRC(cyclic redundancy checks) this two error checking methods.

    The problem is can this both methods combine to use together during transmission data?

    Let say I need to transfer ASCII code and I do CRC first,then before sending data I do parity on the data formed after CRC to make it 8 bits.

    Is this method correct or not?Can someone guide me how to build a error checking by using this two methods together?

    Yes it's common to combine them.
    Once you have calculated the checksum (CRC) it goes on the end of the data like any data - the parity bit is then applied to each byte in the data stream
