# DiscreteRandom

This block is a random signal generator based on discrete probability distribution. Each output component takes piecewise constant random values. Every time an event is received on the input event port, the outputs take new independent random values. Output port size is given by the size of the parameters matrices. You can choose the distribution.

## Description

The DiscreteRandom block is a discrete random wave generator. Each output component is an integer value (int32) and takes piecewise constant random values. Every time an event is received on the activation port, the outputs take new independent random values. Output port size is given by the size of the parameters matrices.

Supported distributions are: Bernoulli, Binomial, Poisson, Uniform, Geometric, HyperGeometric, Logarithminc, Negative Binomial.
