no parity

Not using a parity bit to check for errors. For example, an 8-N-1 setting in a communications program, which was widely used before the Web, means each character transmitted contains (8) eight bits, (N) "no" ninth parity bit and (1) one additional stop bit to mark the end. See non-parity memory.



non-parity memory

Memory chips that do not have a ninth bit used for parity checking. The term also implies that the memory does not use error-correcting code (ECC). See ECC memory and parity checking.
