These modules are hardly used these days. A parity bit is used as error-detecting code. The parity bit is a binary digit (0 or 1) that indicates whether the total number of bits with a value of 1 in a given set is even or odd. Two types of parity bits are used: even parity bit and odd parity bit. The even parity bit is set to 0 when the total count of 1s in the given set is even. If the total count of 1s is odd, the bit is set to 1. On the other hand, the odd parity bit is set to 0 when the total count of 1s in the given set is odd.
