by Dinesh Thakur Category: BINARY CODE

The Gray code was designed by Frank Gray at Bell Labs in 1953. It belongs to a class of codes called the minimum change code. The successive coded characters never differ in more than one-bit. Owing to this feature, the maximum error that can creep into a system using the binary gray code to encode data is much less than the worst -case error encountered in case of straight binary encoding.
