Cyclic Redundancy Code (CRC) is commonly used to determine the correctness of a data transmission or storage. This application note presents a solution to compute 16-bit and 32-bit CRCs on the ultra low-power TI MSP430 microcontroller for the bitwise algorithm (low memory, low cost) and the table-based algorithm (low MIPS, low power). Both algorithms are presented in C and MSP430 assembly. Test code to verify the implementations is also included.
