This report contains the results of a study to determine which Programmable Automated Technical Control Terminal Element PATE software modules could be converted to a microprocessor implementation. The report defines the conversion criteria and recommends which software modules could be converted to a microprocessor implementation. The conversion feasibility is demonstrated by presenting a microprocessor configuration where conversion is recommended. Microprocessor configurations were developed for modules of the In-Service Quality Control Subsystem IQCS, Out-of-Service Quality Control Subsystem OQCS, Digital Distortion Monitoring Subsystem DDMS and the Modem Signal Monitor Subsystem MSMS functions. Cost estimates and a schedule to implement the software recommended for conversion to a microprocessor are provided. The results of a sample conversion and demonstration of the DDMS software routines implemented on a Motorola M6800 microprocessor cross-assembler and simulator are included. Microprocessor maintenance methods applicable to a microprocessor implementation of PATE software routines are discussed. Author
