duobinary signal
A pseudobinary-coded signal in which a "0" ("zero") bit is represented by a zero-level electric current or voltage; a "1" ("one") bit is represented by a positive-level current or voltage if the quantity of "0" bits since the last "1" bit is even, and by a negative-level current or voltage if the quantity of "0" bits since the last "1" bit is odd. Note 1: Duobinary signals require less bandwidth than NRZ. Note 2: Duobinary signaling also permits the detection of some errors without the addition of error-checking bits.
