This circuit demonstrates the use of a 4-bit Hamming code for error detection and error correction. Use the four input switches on the left to set the 4-bit input value for the encoder, which calculates three parity bits and transmits these together with the four data bits.

The seven switches and XOR gates in the middle of the circuit allow to insert faults into the transmitted data.
