Randomizer
  • A device used to invert the sense of pseudorandomly selected bits of a bit stream to avoid long sequences of bits of the same sense. Note: The same selection pattern must be used on the receive terminal in order to restore the original bit stream.
  • An analog or digital source of unpredictable, unbiased, and usually independent bits. Note: Randomizers can be used for several different functions, including key generation or to provide a starting state for a key generator. See also binary digit, data scrambler, descrambler, limited protection voice equipment, scrambler.
