Scrambler initialization state for each packet generated, specified
as an integer from 1 to 127 or as the corresponding binary vector
of length seven. The default value of 93 is the example state given
in IEEE Std 802.11-2012, Section L.1.5.2.

The
scrambler initialization used on the transmission data follows the process described in
IEEE^{®} Std 802.11-2012, Section 18.3.5.5 and IEEE Std 802.11ad™-2012, Section 21.3.9. The header and data fields that follow the scrambler
initialization field (including data padding bits) are scrambled by XORing each bit with a
length-127 periodic sequence generated by the polynomial *S(x)* =
*x*^{7}+*x*^{4}+1. The octets of the PSDU (Physical Layer Service Data Unit) are placed into a
bit stream, and within each octet, bit 0 (LSB) is first and bit 7 (MSB) is last. The generation
of the sequence and the XOR operation are shown in this figure:

Conversion from integer to bits uses left-MSB orientation. For the
initialization of the scrambler with decimal `1`

, the bits are mapped to the
elements shown.

Element | X^{7} | X^{6} | X^{5} | X^{4} | X^{3} | X^{2} | X^{1} |
---|

Bit Value | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 1 |

To generate the bit stream equivalent to a decimal, use `de2bi`

. For example, for decimal
`1`

:

de2bi(1,7,'left-msb')
ans =
0 0 0 0 0 0 1

**Example: **`[1; 0; 1; 1; 1; 0; 1]`

conveys the
scrambler initialization state of 93 as a binary vector.

**Data Types: **`double`
