Study Objective:

Circuits realizing arithmetic operations belong to fundamental components of computers and digital devices in general. In the module, algorithms for basic and advanced arithmetic operations will be presented that are suitable especially to be implemented using logic circuits. The goal is to present various ways to detect or correct individual errors and burst errors in data stored into memories or transmitted via channels.
