Ch. 6 Digital Data Communication Techniques

- 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.

- 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.

- 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.

- 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.

- 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.)

- 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.

- 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.

- 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)

- 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.

- STEP 1: Multiply D by 2n-k.

- 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.

- 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.

- 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.

- 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.

- Basic components:

- 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

- 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.

- 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.

- 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.

- 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).

- 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.

- 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.)

- Procedural (V.24)

- 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.

- 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.

- 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.
