  • Patent number: 6430186
    Abstract: A segmentation and reassembly processor (10) is disclosed for use in interfacing a group of time-division multiplexed lines (25) to a cell-based communication environment (20). The SAR uses a bit-table calendar (100) to schedule cells to be sent to the cell-based network. A cell service decision circuit (50) reads frame events from a frame advanced FIFO (40) and signals a cell builder (60) to assemble cells of data from a frame buffer (70) for transmission to a cell based output (50).
