Clock Recovery

- notice that as long as the receive data contains a substantial number of transitions (1/0 sequences), the recovered clock is maintained. - but if the receive data were to undergo an extended period of successive 1s or 0s, the recovered clock would be lost. - to prevent this from occurring, the data are scrambled at the transmit end and descrambled at the receive end. - Scrambling introduces transitions (pulses) into the binary signal using a prescribed algorithm, and the descrambler uses the same algorithm to remove the transitions.
