Paper Abstract

A 160 million bit per second (Mbps) data bus system is presented. This system provides a high speed data path between distributed subsystems through the use of microprocessor controlled access ports called nodes. Data bus system operation, node functions and high level node design are described. The system is modularly designed to allow data transmission rates from 20 to 160 Mbps in 20 Mbps steps. Each step is achieved by adding a 20 Mbps cable to the bus system, up to the maximum of eight cables. This modularity yields flexibility in tailoring the bus system transfer rate to the character of a particular application or to provide redundant cables for backup capability.
