Summary
  • Manufacturers can lower equipment installation costs and speed up manufacturing operations by connecting all automatic manufacturing equipment to a single digital communications network. The configuration of the digital network can be simplified by basing its design upon an intelligent VLSI token-ring bus controller conforming to the IEEE 802.4 Standard. The token-ring bus network consists of any number of nodes connected to a common bus, as shown in an accompanying diagram. The working interrelationship of the nodes in the communications network is detailed. The VLSI token-ring bus controller (TBC) chip simplifies network design by assuming all the functions in the media access-control (MAC) sublayer. Several such TBC VLSI chips are available; the Motorola HCMOS MC68824 is used as an example. Communication with the physical layer is achieved using an interface specified by IEEE standard 802.4G, which allows communication with any type of physical layer. Pertinent details of the 802.4G standard are provided and a box provides assistance in the selection of either broadband or carrierband media for a user application. A token-bus node is illustrated, along with a flow chart which shows the way message frames are assembled by the host prior to transmission. A typical application which interfaces an MC68824 with a 68020 microprocessor is illustrated. The host-processor and TBC-modem interfaces are described and a serial interface conforming to IEEE Standard 802.4G is also illustrated.
