Hamming code is a parity code, the information bits and test bits must be mixed arrangement at a fixed location to check for errors s and correct the wrong. Based on the design principle of Hamming codes, this paper gives a improved method, proposed to arrangements the test bits in the last digit of code word, so that extract the information bit more convenient, and hardware implementation will be easier.
