AbstractThis paper discusses a PCM telemetry system consisting of programmable logic devices (PLDs) and off-the-shelf analog ICs. A finite state machine (FSM) serves as the system controller. All digital logic, including the FSM, is implemented using PLDs. This approach has two important features. First, the use of an FSM offers a significant speed advantage over microprocessor-controlled systems. Second, the use of PLDs offers a high degree of design flexibility while obtaining a low-power, low-volume system.
