AbstractThe goal of Word Selector hardware design is to place the selection and scaling of displayed data parameters under the control of destination observers. An initial design, discussed at the 1984 ITC, received its input telemetry data from a Compressor with modest throughput. The proliferation of nontraditional formats has forced the adoption of telemetry data preprocessors in place of simple Compressors. A new generation of Word Selectors is being developed with greater speed (1 million parameters/second), a serial data interface, and the equivalent scaling capability of traditional patch panel demultiplexers. The number of nonvolatile local setup files has been increased by 40%.
