Error-Detecting Code
  • A code in which each telegraph or data signal conforms to specific rules of construction, so that departures from this construction in the received signals can be detected automatically.
  • Note: Such codes require more signal elements than are necessary to convey the basic information. See also block parity, code, error, error control, error-correcting code, error-correcting system.
