• Binary Decision Machines: Alternative Logic for Telemetry Control

      Croson, E.; Howard, J.; Jue, L.; University of California, Santa Barbara (International Foundation for Telemetering, 1987-10)
      A Binary Decision Machine (BDM) is described as a means of achieving logical control of data acquisition equipment and telemetry systems. The basic architecture of a BDM is initially presented followed by a description of its implementation as a Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) device. Performance characteristics, programming, and ease of use as a controller are then presented via actual applications. The results of these endeavors led to a means of digitizing and extracting doppler data in a missile telemetry system.
