Additive Scrambler

Scramble an input stream using a Linear Feedback Shift Register (LFSR).

This block scrambles up to 8 bits per byte of the input data stream, starting at the LSB. The scrambler works by XORing the incoming bit stream by the output of the LFSR. Optionally, after bits have been processed, the shift register is reset to the value. This allows processing fixed length vectors of samples.

Alternatively, the LFSR can be reset using a reset tag to scramble variable length vectors. However, it cannot be reset between bytes.

For details on configuring the LFSR, see gr::digital::lfsr.

Reset tag key
When a tag with this key is detected, the shift register is reset (when this is set, count is ignored!)

Example Flowgraph[edit]

Insert description of flowgraph here, then show a screenshot of the flowgraph and the output if there is an interesting GUI. Currently we have no standard method of uploading the actual flowgraph to the wiki or git repo, unfortunately. The plan is to have an example flowgraph showing how the block might be used, for every block, and the flowgraphs will live in the git repo.
