Hamming Code Error Detector/Decoder
By: Jennifer Dilliner &
Advisor: Dr. Vinod Prasad
This chip will accept a seven-bit code word and determine if the signal contains any errors. If an error is detected, a signal will be sent back to request that the code word be resubmitted. If no errors are detected, the code word will be decoded and the four-bit information word will appear on the output pins.
First, this circuit will be designed on the gate
level in Logic Works. A three by seven matrix will be used in the decoding
process, so we will be utilizing matrix addition and multiplication to
analyze the information. After the design is finished and testing at the
gate level is complete, we will minimize the design using VLSI and VHDL
for implementation on a single chip.
