In telecommunications, a self-synchronizing code is a line code in which the symbol stream formed by a portion of one code word, or by the overlapped portion of any two adjacent code words, is not a valid code word. In Telecommunication, a line code (also called digital baseband modulation) is a Code chosen for use within a Communications system for In Telecommunication, a code word is an element of a Code. Each code word is a Sequence of symbols assembled in accordance with the specific rules of
A self-synchronizing code permits the proper framing of transmitted code words provided that no uncorrected errors occur in the symbol stream. In Telecommunication, the term synchronizing has the following meanings Achieving and maintaining Synchronism. While receiving a stream of framed Data, frame synchronization is the process by which incoming frame alignment signals i
External synchronization is not required.
High-Level Data Link Control (HDLC) and Advanced Data Communication Control Procedures (ADCCP) frames represent self-synchronizing code words. High-Level Data Link Control ( HDLC) is a bit-oriented Synchronous Data link layer protocol developed by the International Organization In Telecommunication, Advanced Data Communication Control Procedures (or Protocol) (ADCCP is a Bit -oriented Data link layer protocol
Every self-synchronizing code is a kind of prefix code. A prefix code is a Code, typically a Variable-length code, with the "prefix property" no Code word is a prefix of any other code word However, many prefix codes are not self-synchronizing codes.
