Parity Generators/Checkers

Parity generators/checkers allow the detection of basic data transmission issues in systems.

NXP’s parity generators/checkers include options with two parity outputs. Parity outputs will be defined by the number of parallel inputs that are set HIGH. The even parity output is set HIGH when the number of parallel inputs set HIGH is even.

Parity generators/checkers are available in SO packages. NXP’s parity generators/checkers are fully specified from -40 °C to 85 °C and -40 °C to 125 °C.
