Paper Abstract

The weighted checksum technique has been demonstrated to be effective in multiple error detection. It has been shown that, in order to guarantee error detection, the chosen weight vectors must satisfy some very specific properties about linear independence. Previous weight generating methods that fulfill the independence criteria have problems with numerical overflow. We present a new scheme that generates weight vectors to meet the requirements about independence and to avoid the difficulties with overflow.
