  • Suggestions for control mechanism for reducing the number of priority changes in an adaptive loop

    Publication Year: 1980, Page(s):229 - 232

    A modified Pierce loop network has been described in an earlier paper, incorporating adaptive flow control. This involves a full duplex loop with two types of time slots, one for handling data packets and the other for the transmission of control packets. Each node adjusts its slot usage priority according to its current queue size. A loop supervisor maintains a record of node priorities, and assi... View full abstract»

  • Design and use of comflex¿a hardware-controlled packet switch

    Publication Year: 1980, Page(s):233 - 240

    The paper describes Comflex, a packet switching node intended to provide local computer-to-computer and computer-to-peripheral communication. It has been developed as part of the Flex distributed computer system being produced at RSRE. Comflex is capable of transmitting data at magnetic-disc speed; hence, it makes feasible the use of remote file-stores (and other peripherals) in a local network. H... View full abstract»

  • Good programming in assembly language

    Publication Year: 1980, Page(s):241 - 248
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (995 KB)

    This paper discusses good programming practice, principally for assembly language programs for microprocessors. Current literature on the subject is written mainly for large system programmers and offers little help to the engineering programmer, for whom this paper is written. View full abstract»

  • F.I.R. digital filters based on difference coefficients: design improvements and software implementation

    Publication Year: 1980, Page(s):253 - 258

    A difference-routing digital filter (d.r.d.f.) consists of a transversal filter cascaded with an undamped digital resonator. Complicated multiplication operations are avoided by restricting all coefficients to small integers. A new set of resonator structures, which in many cases offers substantial improvements over existing designs, is first described. The real-time implementation of the resultin... View full abstract»

  • A five-inputs flip-flop

    Publication Year: 1980, Page(s):259 - 262

    A study is presented about a family of bistables whose first elements are the D and JK flip-flops, and whose main property is the fact that we are able to synthesise any autonomous sequential machine having up to 2i internal states (¿¿i ¿¿ i) with just i flip-flops of the type defined by the ith element of the family, and without combinational gates.

  • Mathematical model of scenery hoist system at the olivier theatre

    Publication Year: 1980, Page(s):263 - 274

    Theatres generally have a substantial number of hoists etc. for moving scenery during performances, but one never needs to use more than a proportion of them at any one time. The number of drive controllers provided can therefore be limited to the maximum number needed for simultaneous use, and these can be connected to the required set of hoists through a switching network. The paper gives an acc... View full abstract»
