Limited Magnitude Error Detecting Codes for Flash Memories

Abstract: : The error detecting problem for limited magnitude errors over high radix channels is studied. In this error model, the error magnitude does not exceed a certain limited value and it is known beforehand. For asymmetric, unidirectional and symmetric channels, both all and $t$ error detecting codes are studied. In all these cases, close-to-optimal codes are proposed.
