CRC-8-CCITT is a fast error detection algorithm. It's a standard CRC-8, with polynomial x⁸+x²+x+1. See the Wikipedia article on CRC for more information.

Usage on the 3DS[edit]

On the 3DS operating system, the CRC-8-CCITT is used for:

  • Error detection on ir:USER communications


Now follows a public domain implementation of CRC-8-CCITT, as used by the 3DS:

// crc8.h

#include <stdint.h>
#include <string.h>

uint8_t crc8ccitt(const void * data, size_t size);
// crc8.c

#include "crc8.h"

static const uint8_t CRC_TABLE[256] = {
