This is a simple hardware project that aims to generate a reusable module
5 1 laforge
for interfacing E1/T1/J1 lines from various custom FPGA/CPLD/microcontroller
6 1 laforge
projects.
7 1 laforge
8 1 laforge
The board contains tranformers, the analog circuitry, the LIU (line interface
9 1 laforge
unit), an oscillator as well as an integrated transceiver chip.
10 1 laforge
11 1 laforge
It exposes the control interface (SPI) as well as the decoded synchronous
12 1 laforge
Rx/Tx bitstreams each on a 2x5pin header.
13 1 laforge
14 1 laforge
Framer, Multiplexe,r HDLC decoder or anything like that is out-of-scope for
15 1 laforge
now.  The idea relaly is to provide an interface as low-level as possible.
16 1 laforge
17 1 laforge
One of the ideas is to create a "soft E1" interface, where the Rx/Tx bitstreams
18 1 laforge
are interfaced with the SSC of an AT91SAM3S and subsequently passed into a PC
19 1 laforge
via USB.  The 2Mbps signal is very low-bandwidth, so that a pure software
20 1 laforge
implementation should be absolutely no problem for todays computing power.

23 1 laforge
24 1 laforge
The project is in design phase.  Initial design has finished, but needs to be
25 1 laforge
reviewed.  First prototype PCBs will be expected in January 2012

=== JP2: TDM interface ===
30 1 laforge
31 1 laforge
JP2 contains the serial TDM bitstream + clock for Rx and Tx direction.  The signals are

=== JP1: SPI control ===
45 1 laforge

This is how the external microcontroller can control the transceiver chip.

=== JP9 ===
61 1 laforge
62 1 laforge
JP10 switches the master clock (MCLK) of the transceiver between two on-board oscillators
63 1 laforge
of 2.048 MHz and 1.544 MHz.  This is required for selecting between E1 or T1/J1 mode.

65 1 laforge

||2-3||1.544 MHz (T1/J1) mode||

=== JP10 ===
69 1 laforge
70 1 laforge
This jumper decides if the 2.048/1.544 MHz MCLK should also be used as TDM Transmit Clock.

=== JP3 + JP4 ===
76 1 laforge
77 1 laforge
JP3+JP4 can be used to select which of the pins on the RJ45 connector should be used:
78 1 laforge
79 1 laforge
They should either all be in setting 1-2, or all be in 2-3, but never mixed.
80 1 laforge
81 1 laforge
||1-2||Use pins 3+6 as one pair||
82 1 laforge
||2-3||Use pins 1+2 as one pair||
83 1 laforge
84 1 laforge
=== JP5, JP6, JP7, JP8 ==
85 1 laforge
86 1 laforge
Those select between TE mode and NT mode.
