Decimal values in the biquinary code

In terms of structure, the first bit is shifted forward by one bit position for every second digit, while the second bit is always represented by a least significant bit (LSB) or by the bit preceding it. The quibinary code is redundant and error-proof. However, it is hardly ever used because its 7 bits do not fit into the byte scheme (8 bits).
