It's not hard to guess, that Synchronous Idle is used in synchronous transmission systems in order to make a signal. From this signal a synchronous correction may be accomplished between data terminal equipment, especially in cases when no other character is being transmitted.

Synchronous Idle (SYN) is the ASCII control character 22 (0x16). In caret notation SYN is designated as ^V. The appropriate character in EBCDIC is 50 (0x32). The Synchronous Idle is perfectly suitable for use in some synchronous serial communication systems, for example Teletype machines or the Binary Synchronous (Bisync) protocol. The use of Synchronous Idle here makes a signal. From it one can accomplish a synchronous correction between data terminal equipment, especially when no additional character is being transmitted.

The SYN character possesses the following bit pattern: 00010110 (EBCDIC 00110010). It has one interesting feature: it is different from any bit-wise rotation of itself. This helps bit-alignment of synchronous idles sequences.
