Processors and memory

  1. Apr 19, 2015 #1
    Hey Guys, I can't rap my head around these questions. I'm not to sure how to begin them. Any insight would help.

    1) Convert the 7-bit binary code 011 1101 into a suitable Hamming code that can detect and correct a single bit error. Use EVEN parity. Write your final answer as a 3-digit hexadecimal.

    2) When using Hamming code with EVEN parity for 7-bit ASCII characters, the following symbol is retrieved:

    Assuming a 1-bit error, what was the original stored symbol? Write down your answer as a 7-bit binary, with no spaces.
