Basics of Error Control Codes. Drawing from the book. CSE Error Correcting Codes. 1. Information Theory, Inference, and Learning Algorithms. Error Control Coding. • Channel is noisy. • Channel output prone to error. • ⇒ we need measure to ensure correctness of the bit stream transmitted. Error control. Error control coding aims at developing methods for coding to check the correctness of the bit stream transmitted. The bit stream representation of a symbol is called the codeword of that symbol. A code is linear if two codes are added using modulo-2 arithmetic produces a third codeword in the code.

Following is the representation of the structure of code word, according to their allocation. If the message is not altered, then it is called as systematic code. It means, the encryption of the data error control coding not change the data.

Digital Communication - Error Control Coding

Convolution Error control coding So far, in the linear codes, we have discussed that systematic unaltered code is preferred. Here, the data of total n bits if transmitted, k bits are message bits and n-k bits are parity bits.


In the process of encoding, the parity bits are subtracted from the whole data and the message bits are encoded. Now, the parity bits are again added and the whole data is again encoded. The following figure quotes an example for blocks of data and stream of data, used for transmission of information.

The whole process, stated above is tedious which has drawbacks. The allotment of buffer is a main problem here, when the system is busy. This drawback is cleared in convolution codes. Where the whole stream of data is assigned symbols and then transmitted.

As the data is a stream of bits, there is no need of buffer for storage. Hamming Codes The linearity property of the code word is that the sum of error control coding code words is also a code error control coding.

Hamming codes are the type of linear error correcting codes, which can detect up to two bit errors or they can correct one bit errors without the detection of uncorrected errors. While using the hamming codes, extra parity bits are used to identify a single bit error.

To get from one-bit pattern error control coding the other, few bits are to be changed in the data. There are two basic approaches: A receiver decodes a message using the parity information, and requests retransmission using ARQ only if the parity data was not sufficient for successful decoding identified error control coding a failed integrity check.

Messages are transmitted without parity data only with error-detection information.


If a receiver detects an error, it requests FEC information from the transmitter using ARQ, and uses it to reconstruct the original message. The latter approach is particularly attractive on an erasure channel error control coding using a rateless erasure code.

By the error control coding an ARQ system discovers an error and re-transmits it, the re-sent data will arrive too late to be any good. Applications where the transmitter immediately forgets the information as soon as it is sent such as most television cameras cannot use ARQ ; they must use Error control coding because when an error occurs, the original data is no longer available.

Applications that require extremely low error rates such as digital error control coding transfers must use ARQ. Reliability and inspection engineering also make use of the theory of error-correcting codes. Each Ethernet frame carries a CRC checksum.

Frames received with incorrect checksums are discarded by the receiver hardware.

Digital Communication Error Control Coding

Error control coding IPv4 header contains a checksum protecting the contents of the header. Packets with mismatching checksums are dropped within the network or at the receiver. The checksum was omitted from the IPv6 header in order to minimize processing costs in network routing and because current error control coding layer technology is assumed to provide sufficient error detection see also RFC Packets with incorrect checksums are discarded by the operating system network stack.
