Abstract:

A preliminary design was developed for a special microprocessor based interface called the universal network interface device. The universal network interface device accepts peripheral inouts, formats these inputs into a message structure established by the link control protocol, and transmits the messages over the communication network. Conversely, it accepts messages from the network, determines if the message to the subscriber or back on the network. The design of the universal network interface device was modularized to allow the device to be configured based upon the user local network requirements.
