About this book


Error Coding for Engineers provides a useful tool for practicing engineers, students, and researchers, focusing on the applied rather than the theoretical. It describes the processes involved in coding messages in such a way that, if errors occur during transmission or storage, they are detected and, if necessary, corrected. Very little knowledge beyond a basic understanding of binary manipulation and Boolean algebra is assumed, making the subject accessible to a broad readership including non-specialists.
The approach is tutorial: numerous examples, illustrations, and tables are included, along with over 30 pages of hands-on exercises and solutions.
Error coding is essential in many modern engineering applications. Engineers involved in communications design, DSP-based applications, IC design, protocol design, storage solutions, and memory product design are among those who will find the book to be a valuable reference. Error Coding for Engineers is also suitable as a text for basic and advanced university courses in communications and engineering.
