Abstract:
This paper describes the design and simulation of a network interface unit (NIU) for a picture archiving and communication system (PACS) network called PACnet. PACnet is a dual fiber optic ring network under development at the Computer Engineering Research Laboratory of the University of Arizona. This network integrates voice, data, and image communications in a hospital environment and supports a throughput rate between 200-500 megabits per second. At each node in the network, an NIU implements the Data Link Layer and Physical Layer protocols of PACnet. The initial network interface unit design for PACnet was a functional description of NIU protocols and major components. In order to construct a demonstration prototype of PACnet,the NIU description must be refined and an architecture must be specified. The NIU design is specified and simulated using the hardware description language VHDL. Simulation results provide information on NIU timing characteristics and logic families required to implement the NIU.
