Abstract

The IEEE 1451 standards define sets of common communication interfaces to standardize the connectivity of transducer to microprocessor, instrumentation systems, and networks. This thesis presents a single chip solution for these standards using Altera's Excalibur chip. All pertinent elements of the standard for the Transducer Interface Model (TIM) and Network Capable Application Processor (NCAP) were implemented using a combination of hardware (FPGA) and software. The total design takes advantage of the architecture provided by the Excalibur chip. Past solutions have only implemented the TIM and interfaced it to an NCAP using the digital communication protocol defined in the standard. This solution eliminates inter-chip communication. Rather, an on-chip parallel connection is established between the TIM and NCAP through a high performance bus.
