CRC-16 Hash Generator

What is CRC-16

A cyclic redundancy check (CRC) is a code that detects unintentional changes to raw data in digital networks and storage devices. These systems assign data blocks a short check value based on the remainder of a polynomial division of their contents. When the data is retrieved, the calculation is repeated, and if the check values do not match, corrective action can be taken to prevent data corruption.

CRC-16 produces a 16-bit data string which is equivalent to 2 bytes. It is commonly used in wireless communication systems and networking protocol implementations.

Calculating the CRC-16 hash of a string is not something that one can be done manually because hashing a string is a very complex and tedious process. That is where our online CRC-16 hash generator tool comes into play.

We have so many methods and tools available to calculate the CRC-16 hash of a string, but not every online tool gives an accurate result and that is why we have created this online CRC-16 Hash Generator tool. It is a very simple and easy-to-use tool. Most important thing is that it is beginner-friendly.

How to Use CRC-16 Hash Generator Tool

  • As you can see, we have 2 input fields and 1 dropdown.
  • On the left-hand side, enter a text in the input field.
  • On the right-hand side, select CRC-16 from the dropdown. As soon as you perform the selection, the tool will generate the CRC-16 hash of the text and display the result.
