Abstract

Parity generation and parity checking are functions frequently used in processor design. An extra bit, the parity bit, is generated by byte of data in the parity generator. This parity bit is then stored in a RAM through the write operation and latter checked, when one wants to use data out of the RAM, after a read operation.
