The KAD/BCU/101 functions as two modules in one; an encoder and a backplane controller. The encoder is functionally identical to the KAD/ENC/005 and encodes data from any Acra KAM-500 module in an IRIG-106 Chapter 4 PCM stream.
Parameters to be transmitted are stored in pre-defined locations in RAM. Each parameter has a word definition that includes the bits per word, Most Significant Bit (MSB) (sent first or last), and parity. The encoder has differential-ended RS-422 outputs for clock and data, along with buffered TTL outputs for NRZ-L and the bit/word/minor-frame/major-frame pulses.
Up to 15 formats (instruction sequences), can be stored at any time. Format selection is via four single-ended discrete (0-5V) input pins on the I/O (Input/Output) connector. As up to 64 chassis can be programmed using a single programming link, there are also six discrete I/O pins to set a chassis number. These six inputs are pulled to ground internally if left open circuit.
