The techniques developed in Part I for discrete-time analog scrambling are applied to the problem of scrambling band-limited continuous-time signals or waveforms. The idea behind the waveform scrambler is to sample the waveform (which is assumed to be band-limited) at a rate exceeding the Nyquist rate. The resulting sequence of samples is band-limited in the sense of Part I. The discrete-time scrambler described in Part I is applied to this sequence to produce a nearly band-limited scrambled sequence. A scrambled waveform is formed by modulating the amplitudes of a chain of pulses. This scrambled waveform can be transmitted over a band-limited channel, and the original unscrambled waveform can be recovered at the receiver.
