It is shown that if a 4-by-n binary matrix has four distinct even-parity rows such that each column has exactly two 0's and two 1's, then there exists a totally self-checking even-parity checker that is tested by the four rows of this matrix. The utility of this result in designing self-testing embedded parity checkers is described.
