Differential Encoder

Encode binary signal using differential coding

Library

Source Coding

Description

The Differential Encoder block encodes the binary input signal within a channel. The output is the logical difference between the current input element and the previous output element. More specifically, the input and output are related by

d(i0) = m(i0) XOR Initial condition parameter value

d(ik) = d(ik-1) XOR m(ik)

where

  • m is the input message.

  • d is the differentially encoded output.

  • ik is the kth element.

  • XOR is the logical exclusive-or operator.

This block accepts a scalar or column vector input signal and treats columns as channels.

Dialog Box

Initial conditions

The logical exclusive-or of this value with the initial input value forms the initial output value.
