Abstract

Most commercially available read-only memories (ROMs) are not configured to readily carry a parity bit. It is, however, often desirable to utilize such ROMs because of price and/or performance factors. The lack of parity bit provision in such instances is overcome by the arrangement described below which utilizes hard-coded parity bits.
