Convert octal number to binary coefficients


b = oct2poly(oct)
b = oct2poly(oct,ord)



b = oct2poly(oct) converts an octal number, oct, to a vector of binary coefficients, b.

b = oct2poly(oct,ord) specifies the power order, ord, of the coefficients that comprise the output. If omitted, ord is 'descending'.

Convert the octal number 11 to a binary vector.

b = oct2poly(11)
b = 1×4

     1     0     0     1

The binary vector corresponds to the polynomial x3+1.

Convert the octal number 65 to an ascending order binary vector.

b = oct2poly(65,'ascending')
b = 1×6

Sixty-five octal is the generator polynomial of a (15,10) Hamming code in the Bluetooth v4.0 standard. The binary representation of 65 octal is 110101 and the GF(2) polynomial is 1+x2+x4+x5 or [1 0 1 0 1 1] in ascending powers.
