Ch. 6 Digital Data Communication Techniques

6.1Asynchronous & Synchronous Transmission

  • Asynchronous Transmission: transmission in which each information character is individually synchronized (usually by the use of start and stop elements).

  • Synchronous Transmission: transmission in which the time of occurrence of each signal representing a bit is related to a fixed time frame.

6.1 Asynchronous Transmission

  • Also known as character transmission or "start-stop" transmission.

  • One character at a time is transmitted.

    • The line usually idles at a logic 1

    • Each character has a start bit (logic 0) .

    • The start bit is followed by 5-8 data bits.

    • A single party bit can be generated, but it is optional.

    • 1, 1.5, or 2 stop bits (logic 1) finish the "framing" of the character.

6.1 Asynchronous Transmission (Fig. 6.1)

  • The efficiency E = # of inf. bits/ total # of bits.

  • Example: ASCII code, odd parity, 2 stop bits.

    • # of inf. bits= 7

    • Total =1 start + 7 data + 1 parity + 2 stop = 11

    • Efficiency = 7/11= .64 or 64%.

  • Transmitter and receiver have a "shift-register" structure.

  • A separate clock exists at each end.

  • UART--Integrated circuit implementation.

6.1 Asynchronous Transmission

  • Timing Requirements (Fig. 6.1c)

    • Consider a 10 kbps transmitter clock.

    • Each bit will be 100 microseconds.

    • Assume the receiver is faster by 6%, or 6 microseconds during each bit time.

    • The transmitter sends 1 start bit and 7 data bits in 800 microseconds.

    • The receiver looks for the 8th data bits after 8.5x94=799 microseconds.

6.1 Synchronous Transmission (Fig. 6-2)

  • Also known as block transmission.

  • Clock is transmitted along with the info. bits.

  • Higher data rates can be obtained.

  • Overhead bytes are transmitted.

  • Can be character-oriented or bit-oriented.

  • Large information fields relative to total overhead can provide high throughput (sometimes.)

6.2 Types of Errors

  • Probabilities of Error Types

    • Pb: Probability of a single bit error (BER).

    • P1: A frame arrives with no bit errors

    • P2: A frame arrives with some undetected bit errors.

    • P3: A frame arrives with some detected bit errors.

  • Assume that no parity is sent (P3=0):

    • P1 = (1-Pb) ^F, where F is the frame size.

    • P2 = 1 - P1

  • Example: If Pb or F is "large" then P2 could become a problem.

6.2 Error Detection

  • Fig. 6.3--The error detection process.

  • Parity Check

    • The simplest scheme.

    • Even number of errors is undetectable.

  • Cyclic Redundancy Check (CRC)

    • Very powerful and often used.

    • Given k message bits, n "check" bits are generated.

    • k+n bits are transmitted together.

6.2 Error Detection--CRC

  • Modulo 2 Arithmetic

    • Binary addition without carries (exclusive or operation.)

  • The simple view is to consider variable, binary strings:

    • D-- data or message (k-bits)

    • F--frame check sequence (n-k bits)

    • P--pattern of n-k+1 bits

    • T--transmitted frame (n bits)

6.2 Error Detection--CRC (p.2)

  • Consider the following three step process:

    • STEP 1: Multiply D by 2n-k.

      • n-k 0's will be shifted in, from the right.

    • STEP 2: Divide by P

      • This will produce a quotient and a remainder.

      • The quotient (Q) will not be used, but the remainder (R) is used as F.

    • STEP 3: Add R to the shifted version of D to produce T.

      • R replaces the n 0's that were added to D.

      • T will be transmitted.

6.2 Error Detection--CRC (p.3)

  • Why does this work?

    • We are looking for something that is evenly divisible by P.

    • T/P =(D2n-k +R)/P = (D2n-k/P) + R/P =Q+R/P+ R/P.

    • But R/P + R/P =0, because of modulo 2 arithmetic.

    • Hence T/P=Q which is evenly divisible by P (remainder is 0).

    • Example 6.4--page 181.

6.2 Error Detection--CRC(p.4)

  • Suppose that bit errors are possible during transmission.

    • Model the error pattern (E) as a binary string with a 1 in the position of a bit that has been received incorrectly.

    • Received frame: Tr = T + E.

    • Divide by P: Tr/P = T/P + E/P= Q + E/P

    • If the remainder is 0, then assume E=0.

    • If P is chosen properly, very few error patterns will be evenly divisible by P (i.e. have a remainder of 0) and very few undetected errors will occur.

6.3 Error Detection--CRC (p.5)

  • Polynomials (Example 6.5 and Fig. 6.4)

    • The CRC process can be viewed as binary polynomials of X.

    • The coefficients of the polynomials correspond to the previously defined bit-string variables.

    • Arithmetic operations use modulo-2 (this makes it an "algebra.")

  • Generating Polynomials

    • Carefully chosen polynomials can allow the detection of many types of errors(p.183).

    • Ex: CRC-12, CRC-16, CRC-CCITT, CRC-32.

6.3 Error Detection--CRC (p.6)

  • CRCs can be generated using hardware (See Fig. 6.5 and 6.6 and Example 6.6).

    • Basic components:

      • D Type flip-flops (or J-K Equivalents)-- one for each CRC bit.

      • Exclusive OR gates (or equivalents)

    • Operation:

      • Flip-Flops are initialized to 0.

      • Message bits are clocked into the circuit.

6.4 Error Correction

  • Fig. 6.7 Error Correction Process

    • k bits are “mapped” into n bit block.

    • Result is called a codeword.

    • Example 6.7--Forward Error Correction

    • (n-k)/k is called the redundancy.

    • k/n is called the code rate.

  • Fig. 6.8 How Coding Improves System Performance

6.5 Line Configurations

  • Topology: refers to the physical arrangement of stations on a link.

    • Point-to-point

    • Multipoint--saves you money!

  • Duplexity: refers to the direction and timing of signal flow.

    • Full-duplex digital lines generally require 4-wires.

    • Half-duplex digital lines require 2 wires

  • Fig. 6-9 Traditional Computer/Terminal Configurations.

6.5 Line Discipline

  • Point-to-Point: Three Phases (not in 8th Edition)

    • Establishment

    • Data Transfer

    • Termination

  • Multipoint Links

    • Poll--the primary requests data from secondary

    • Select--the primary has data to send and informs secondary that data are coming.

    • Contention--no primary; a station can transmit when the line is free used in LANs and satellite systems.

Appendix G: Interfacing (Fig.G.1)

  • DTE--Data Terminal Equipment (not in 8th Edition)

    • Equipment consisting of digital end instruments that convert the user information into data signals for transmission, or reconvert the received data signals into user information.

  • DCE--Data Circuit-terminating Equipment

    • In a data station, the equipment that provides the signal conversion and coding between the data terminal equipment (DTE) and the line.

    • DCE may be separate equipment or an integral part of the DTE or intermediate equipment.

G.1 Interfacing (cont.)

  • Interchange Circuits

    • The connection between the DTE and DCE.

  • Standards--Physical Layer of the OSI Model

    • V.24/EIA-232-F (RS-232--1962)

    • X.21--15 wire interface for public switched network interfacing.

    • ISDN Physical Interface (8 wire interface).

G.1 Four Characteristics

  • Mechanical

    • Pertain to the actual physical connection of the DTE and DCE (the terminator plugs and sockets).

  • Electrical

    • The voltage levels and timing of voltage changes.

  • Functional

    • The functions performed by various interchange circuits: data, control, timing and ground.

  • Procedural

    • The sequence of events for transmitting data.

G.1 EIA-232-F

  • Mechanical (ISO 2110)

    • DB-25 connector (a 25 pin connector)

    • Fig. G.2.

  • Electrical(V.28)

    • Digital signaling; up to 20 kbps; up to 15m.

    • Logic 1 and OFF : less than -3 volts

    • Logic 0 and ON : greater than +3 volts

    • And more (C, R, short circuit current, max voltages, slew rate, etc.)

G.1 EIA-232-F (p.2)

  • Functional (V.24)

    • Table G-1--Interchange Circuits

  • Procedural (V.24)

    • Fig. G.4

G.1 Loopback Testing

  • EIA-232-F control circuits assist in loopback testing and fault isolation.

    • Local loopback tests are used to check the functioning of the local interface and the local DCE.

    • Remote loopback tests are used to check the transmission channel and the remote DCE.

  • Figure G.3 Local and remote loopback.

G.1 The Null Modem

  • Used to connect two DTEs directly (no DCEs used).

  • It is not a real modem, but simply a cable that rewires the circuits to trick the DTEs into thinking that they are talking with DCEs.

  • Fig. G.5 illustrates the null modem wiring.

G.2 ISDN Physical Interface

  • X.21--15 pin connection for digital interface to public switched networks.

  • ISDN--ISO 8877 specifies an 8 pin connector.

  • The reduction of interface circuits forced greater complexity in the logic circuits at each end of the cable, but integrated circuits have become cheap whereas wire remains relatively expensive.

  • Fig. G.6 shows the ISDN Interface.
