Fire code Data Link Error Detection / Correction Method

Developed in the 1970's, Fire Codes are basically a tricky way of providing the same results as row and column parity or CRC. They are very fast to decode and check, and can be used to correct errors as well.

Fire codes operate because of the careful selection of the CRC-generating polynomial. (X^ 23 +1)( X^ 17 +X^3 +1) These special polynomials contain two prime-polynomial factors, each of which helps locate a detected error. Knowing the location of a transmitted error modulo and the degree of each of these prime-polynomial factors, you can apply the Chinese remainder theorem to locate the exact bit error. Although the math sounds complex, you can easily implement it with high-speed D flip-flops and XOR gates. If a 32-bit fire-code-protected block contains two errors separated by exactly 11 bits, the fire code fails to correct the errors.
