Explanation of CRC Operation: Polynomial Division, Shift Register, and Comparison (video)

 Here is a video explaining the mechanics of Cyclic Redundancy Check computations, including:

  • An example of the polynomial division approach
  • An example of the XOR-feedback shift register approach
  • A step-by-step comparison of how the polynomial division and shift register approaches are actually doing exactly the same computation.
If you've ever wondered why it is that a shift register and polynomial division end up with the same result, this video explains it.
