reflected binary

[ri′flek·təd ′bī‚ner·ē]
(computer science)
A particular form of gray code which is constructed according to the following rule: Let the first 2 N code patterns be given, for any N greater than 1; the next 2 N code patterns are derived by changing the (N + 1)-th bit from the right from 0 to 1 and repeating the original 2 N patterns in reverse order in the N rightmost positions. Also known as reflected code.
