Cyclic redundancy check

An error-detecting code commonly used in Signal Processing to detect accidental changed to raw data. The check value is based on the remainder of a polynomial division of the data.

They are called CRCs because the check value is a redundancy and the algorithm is based on cyclic codes.

CRCs are popular because they are simple to implement in hardware, easy to analyze and good at detecting common errors cause by noise in transmission channels.


TBD, but check out if all you need is a result.
