Block Codes

Some articles on codes, block codes, blocks, code:

Channel Code - Overview
... Channel codes are made up of two main type convolutional codes and block codes ... In practical communication systems, convolutional codes tend to be one of the more widely used channel codes ... These codes are used primarily for real-time error correction and can convert an entire data stream into one single codeword ...
Block Code
... In coding theory, block codes refers to the large and important family of error-correcting codes that encode data in blocks ... There is a vast number of examples for block codes, many of which have a wide range of practical applications ... The main reason why the concept of block codes is so useful is that it allows coding theorists, mathematicians, and computer scientists to study the limitations of all ...
Error Detection And Correction - Error Correction - Error-correcting Code
... An error-correcting code (ECC) or forward error correction (FEC) code is a system of adding redundant data, or parity data, to a message, such that it can ... Error-correcting codes are frequently used in lower-layer communication, as well as for reliable storage in media such as CDs, DVDs, hard disks, and RAM ... Error-correcting codes are usually distinguished between convolutional codes and block codes Convolutional codes are processed on a bit-by-bit basis ...

Famous quotes containing the words codes and/or block:

    Thou hast a voice, great Mountain, to repeal
    Large codes of fraud and woe; not understood
    By all, but which the wise, and great, and good
    Interpret, or make felt, or deeply feel.
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    When the landscape buckles and jerks around, when a dust column of debris rises from the collapse of a block of buildings on bodies that could have been your own, when the staves of history fall awry and the barrel of time bursts apart, some turn to prayer, some to poetry: words in the memory, a stained book carried close to the body, the notebook scribbled by hand—a center of gravity.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)
