Features

The implementation calculated the CRC number of specified data. You are able to choose one of the following checks:

Examples

Type Input Hash
CRC-8 The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog 0xc1
CRC-10 The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog 0x0f8
CRC-12 The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog 0x515
CRC-16 The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog 0x60ae
CRC-CCITT The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog 0xf0c8
CRC-32 The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog 0xc9487f7e
