What are the types of errors?


There are two types of error

Single-Bit error

  • Only one bit of given data unit (such as a byte, character, or data unit) is changed from 1 to 0 or from 0 to 1.

  • Least likely type of errors in serial data transmission but can happen in parallel data transmission- for example, if 16 wires are used to send all 16 bits of a word at the same time and one of the wires is noisy, one bit is corrupted in each word.

Burst Error

  • Two or more bits in the data unit have changed from 0 to 1 or vice-versa.

  • Doesn’t necessary occur in consecutive bits.

  • The length of the burst error is measured from the first corrupted bit to the last corrupted bit. Some bits in between may not be corrupted.

  • Burst errors are mostly likely to happen in serial transmission where duration of the noise is normally longer than the duration of a single bit, which means that the noise affects many bits of data.
