Abstract

This is a methodology for the construction of error correcting codes with minimum distance 4 and with package error detection ability. Let: r = Number of check bits b = Number of bits in a package n = Number of packages in a code C(r,b) = An SEC-DED (single error correction-double error detection) code with r check bits that detects all possible errors in a b-bit package.
