The DS3141/DS3142/DS3143/DS3144 devices include all necessary circuitry to frame and format up to four separate DS3 or E3 channels. Each framer in these devices is independently configurable to support M23 DS3, C-Bit Parity DS3, or G.751 E3. The framers interface to a variety of line interface units (LIUs), microprocessor buses, and other system components without glue logic. Each DS3/E3 framer has its own HDLC controller, FEAC controller, and BERT, as well as full support for error detection and generation, performance monitoring, and loopbacks.

Product Detail

The DS3144 design kit is an easy-to-use evaluation board for the DS3144 quad DS3/E3 framer. It is intended to be used as a daughter card with the DK101 motherboard or the DK2000 motherboard. The DS3144DK comes complete with a DS3144 quad framer, DS3154 quad LIU, transformers, termination resistors, network connectors, and motherboard connectors. Interface to the DK101/DK2000 and Dallas' ChipView software give point-and-click access to configuration and status registers from a personal computer. On-board LEDs indicate loss-of-signal, out-of-frame, and interrupt status. An on-board FPGA contains mux logic to connect framer ports to one another or to the DK2000 in a variety of configurations.
