The INT-8987 Vector Signal
Mapper (VSM) is a data translator. The unit accepts as its input a clocked
parallel data word that is from 1 to 16 bits in width. An output word of
the same width is produced by applying this input word to a programmable
look up table (LUT). The LUT is loaded via an internal processor that may
be controlled by the system user from the remote control interface. The
contents of each LUT location may be programmed to be any desired binary
data value. Alternatively the LUT contents may be specified by a Boolean
expression to be a function of the input vector. This is a handy to define
shift, rotational and complimentary mapping. Using this method each output
bit is specified to be equal to any one of the input bits, or the
complement of any of the input bits.
The INT-8987 VSM is a
two-channel unit. It accepts and maps two independent input vectors via
two separate LUT's to output words.
The INT-8987 is enclosed
in a full width 3U (5.25” high) rack mount chassis.
