Parity refers to the redundant check bit that represents the even/odd condition of a certain unit (usually one byte) of computer data stored in the RAM of a device. This is used to check and double check for errors by comparing the stored and the computed parity. Parity bits are stored in additional individual memory chips, with 9 bits for every 8...
The binary number system is a numbering system that represents numeric values using two unique digits (0 and 1). Mosting computing devices use binary numbering to represent electronic circuit voltage state, (i.e., on/off switch), which considers 0 voltage input as off and 1 input as on.
This is also known as the base-2 number system, or the binary numbering system.
Microcontrollers only use binary logic in computing. Compare this to the decimal numbering system, which is comprised of 10 unique digits (0-9). For example, a user input of 345 (in decimals) is 101011001 in binary form.
