Abstract:

The design and development of a serial fiber optic data bus to connect several Intel single board computers in a distributed processing system is described in this thesis. Included are details on the serial bus control and message handling techniques developed for the system. Also included is a complete description of the hardware that was constructed. Commercially available fiber optic components were used in the data bus. The interface software is compatible with a real-time operating system previously developed at the Naval Postgraduate School.
