Generate Bernoulli-distributed random binary numbers
Random Data Sources sublibrary of Comm Sources
The Bernoulli Binary Generator block generates random binary numbers using a Bernoulli distribution. The Bernoulli distribution with parameter p produces zero with probability p and one with probability 1-p. The Bernoulli distribution has mean value 1-p and variance p(1-p). The Probability of a zero parameter specifies p, and can be any real number between zero and one.
The output signal can be a column or row vector, a two-dimensional matrix, or a scalar. The number of rows in the output signal corresponds to the number of samples in one frame and is determined by the Samples per frame parameter. The number of columns in the output signal corresponds to the number of channels and is determined by the number of elements in the Probability of a zero parameter. See Sources and Sinks in Communications Toolbox™ User's Guide for more details.
The probability with which a zero output occurs. Specify the probability as a scalar or row vector whose elements are real numbers between 0 and 1. The number of elements in the Probability of a zero parameter correspond to the number of independent channels output from the block.
The source of the initial seed for the random number

Parameter. When set to
Auto, the block uses
the global random number stream.
When Source of initial
mode, the random number generator uses an initial
seed of zero. Therefore, the block generates the
same random numbers each time it is started. Use

The initial seed value for the random number
generator. Specify the seed as a nonnegative integer
scalar. Initial seed is
available when the Source of initial
seed parameter is set to
The time between each sample of a column of the output signal.
The number of samples per frame in one channel of the output signal. Specify Samples per frame as a positive integer scalar.
The time between output updates is equal to the product of Samples per frame and Sample time. For example, if Sample time and Samples per frame equal one, the block outputs a binary sample every second. If Samples per frame is increased to 10, then a 10-by-1 vector is output every 10 seconds. This ensures that the equivalent output rate is not dependent on the Samples per frame parameter.
The output type of the block can be specified as a
double. The default is
Select the simulation mode.
On the first model run, simulate and generate code. If the structure of the block does not change, subsequent model runs do not regenerate the code.
If the simulation mode is

corresponding to the blocks accept a maximum of
Simulate model without generating code. This option results in faster start times but can slow subsequent simulation performance.
