Data Encoding

This outlines basics of encoding analog or digital data using analog or digital signals. The previous page considered signal transmission. Once a coding form is chosen, then a sending unit may transmit data to a receiving unit using the same coding and conventions. The sender usually wishes to distinguish between control and data bits, and indicate the byte or word boundaries of the data bits. Synchronization and framing are the topic of the next page .
