dipulse coding
The coding of "1's" and "0's" in a message in which one full cycle of a square wave, i.e., a positive pulse followed by a negative pulse in the same bit period, is transmitted when the message bit is a "1" and nothing is transmitted when the bit is a "0", or vice versa. Note: A dipulse signal can be generated by encoding the data into 50% return-to-zero (RZ) unipolar data and sending the bits through an AND gate with the system clock pulse. This RZ bit stream is then delayed one half-bit period and then added to the undelayed RZ stream. This produces the final dipulse waveform. The dipulse power spectrum is similar to that of the biphase coding power spectrum except dipulse coding produces a pulse-repetition rate equal to the bit rate. [From Weik '89]
