Abstract:

The report documents the investigation performed in establishing the design recommendations concerning the compression or transmit and expansion or receive buffers that satisfy the TDMA requirements for DSCS 2. A TDMA network model provided by USASATCOMA was the basis used to establish the requirements imposed upon the buffers. Memory and control logic technologies were surveyed to establish the state-of-the-art of components to be used in the design of the buffers. Candidate buffer configurations that satisfy the requirements were established using the promising memory technologies and traded off using cost, flexibility, growth potential, reliability and availability as the criterion. The recommended buffer system for TDMA was designed and a summary of the logical, phusical and operational aspects of the buffer design are included. More detail design information will be found in the Design Plan. Author
