Walsh-Hadamard transform (WHT) can solve linear error equations on Field F2, and the method can be used to recover the parameters of convolutional code. However, solving the equations with many unknowns needs enormous computer memory which limits the application of WHT. In order to solve this problem, a method based on segmented WHT is proposed in this paper. The coefficient vector of high dimension is reshaped and two vectors of lower dimension are obtained. Then the WHT is operated and the requirement for computer memory is much reduced. The code rate and the constraint length of convolutional code are detected from the Walsh spectrum. And the check vector is recovered from the peak position. The validity of the method is verified by the simulation result, and the performance is proved to be optimal.
