Binary Codes

  • bit is just called as binary digit
  • To represent 2n elements, n bits are needed

Here are the following Binary Codes,

For example, the BCD code is otherwise called as 8421 code where the 8,4,2,1 are the weights assigned to the digits

for number 3 (0011), the weightage will be 0 * 8 + 0 * 4 + 1 * 2 + 1 *1

in 84-2-1 code, the weights are arranged like this,

for example, for number 2 (0110),  it is 0 * 8 + 1 * 4 + 1 * –2 + 0 * –1

similarly the same case for 2421 codes.

Excess – 3 is a code which is in excess of 3 in decimal numbers .

Error Detection Codes

  • Binary information is usually transmitted from one place to other through wired medium, due to the electromagnetic radiation or external noise, the information bits can be changed (ie 1 to 0 or 0 to 1), in this scenario, there is a provision to check whether the given word or byte is correct or not. Parity bits are used for that.
  • Odd parity or even parity is adopted based on the application, but mostly even parity is adopted.
  • Parity bit is an extra bit added along with the given byte to make the number of 1’s in the total word is even or odd (based on even or odd parity)
Message odd parity bit Message Even parity bit
0000 1 0000 0
0001 0 0001 1
0010 0 0010 1
0011 0 0011 0
0100 0 0100 1
0101 1 0101 0
0110 1 0110 0
0111 0 0111 1
1000 1 1000 1
1001 1 1001 0
1010 1 1010 0
1011 0 1011 1
1100 1 1100 0
1101 0 1101 1
1110 0 1110 1
1111 1 1111 0

Gray Code

Gray code is different from binary code in which only one bit change is there in the code group. Moving from one number to another number, there is just only one bit change. here is an example of Gray Code

Gray Code Decimal Equivalent
0000 0
0001 1
0011 2
0010 3
0110 4
0111 5
0101 6
0100 7
1100 8
1101 9
1111 10
1110 11
1010 12
1011 13
1001 14
1000 15

 

Other Alpha Numeric Codes

  • ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange)
    • used in Keywords,
    • take 7 bit data
    • can able to address 128 characters

  • EBCIC  (Extended Binary Coded Decimal Interchange Code)
    • This code is from IBM
    • uses 8 bits, so addresses up to 256

Installing ns-3.34 in Ubuntu 20.04

This post shows how to install ns 3.34 in Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Prerequisites: Fresh installation of Ubuntu Version 20.04 LTS  ns3.34 can be downloaded from here Follow the video link for complete step by step instructions on the installation.  This version fixes the compilation issues of vanet-routing-compare.cc (bug in ns3.33)  Issue the following commands after opening a terminal  $ sudo apt update $ sudo apt install g++ python3 python3-dev python-dev pkg-config sqlite3 python3-setuptools git qt5-default gir1.2-goocanvas-2.0 python3-gi python3-gi-cairo python3-pygraphviz gir1.2-gtk-3.0 ipython3 openmpi-bin openmpi-common openmpi-doc libopenmpi-dev autoconf cvs bzr unrar openmpi-bin openmpi-common openmpi-doc libopenmpi-dev tcpdump wireshark libxml2 libxml2-dev Unzip or untar the ns-allinone-3.34.tar.bz2 in the home folder (in my case its /home/pradeepkumar) $ cd ns-allinone-3.34/ $ ./build.py --enable-examples --enable-tests  Once the installation is completed, you may get an output show

Installation of ns3 in Windows 10 and Windows 11 OS using WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux)

This post shows how to install ns-3.33 in Windows 10 through WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux) This posts works for Windows 11 also (I have tested it on a Windows 11 ISO and it works the Same way as mentioned in the following post.) This post will work for ns-3.3x version. Prerequisites : Install Windows Subsystem for Linux with GUI: Please refer the following video  System Information: OS used: Windows 10 and WSL (Ubuntu 20.04) GUI: XServer for Windows NS3 Version: ns-3.33 See the following complete video on how to install ns3 in Windows 10 Step 0 : Open XLaunch Step 1 :  Open WSL using PowerShell and open it as Administrator Command:/  wsl $ xfce4-session The GUI of Ubuntu Opens within Windows 10 OS. Step 2 : Download ns3 from nsnam.org website through Mozilla Firefox browser Step 3: Open a Terminal  $ sudo apt update $ sudo apt install build-essential autoconf automake libxmu-dev python3-pygraphviz cvs mercurial bzr git cmake p7zip-full python3-matplotlib python-tk python3-dev qt5-q

Installing NS-3.32 in Ubuntu 20.04

This is about installing ns version 3.32 in Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. #ns3 #ns3 .32 #networksimulation The commands used in the video are given here. $] sudo apt update $] sudo apt install build-essential autoconf automake libxmu-dev python3-pygraphviz cvs mercurial bzr git cmake p7zip-full python3-matplotlib python-tk python3-dev qt5-qmake qt5-default gnuplot-x11 wireshark Download the ns-allinone-3.32.tar.bz2 package from nsnam.org and copy it to /home/ folder See the full video for detailed instructions Extract it either in GUI or using command $] tar jxvf ns-allinone-3.32.tar.bz2 $] cd ns-allinone-3.32/ $] ./build.py --enable-examples --enable-tests The above command will take some time to install all the packages  You can see the output as shown below ns3 To check whether ns3 installed successfully, use the following commands. $] cd ns-3.32/ $] ./waf --run hello-simulator You should get the output as Hello Simulator $] ./waf --run first This is the example from the ns-3.32/exa
