A detailed study of the effects of binary spreading sequences (BSS) excitation in the magnetization dynamics of exchange-biased spin-valves driven by spin-transfer-torque has been carried out by full micromagnetic modeling. We show that the use of BSS allows to trigger the magnetization reversal by exciting its main precession modes. We compared our numerical results with the experimental ones reported by [Cui et al., Phys. Rev. B 77, 214440 (2008)], attaining quantitative agreement. Advantages of BSS as microwave source with respect to a sinusoidal signal are also reported and discussed.
