Verification Methods for AS5653 Network Controller, Network Terminal, and Switch Physical Layer
|Publication Date:||1 August 2018|
This document was prepared by the SAE AS-1A2 Committee to establish techniques for verifying that Network Controllers (NCs), Network Terminals (NTs), switches, cables, and connectors comply with the physical layer requirements specified in AS5653B. Note that this verification document only verifies the specific requirements from AS5653B and does not verify all of the requirements invoked by documents that are referenced by AS5653B. The procuring authority may require further testing to verify the requirements not explicitly defined in AS5653B and in this verification document.
The purpose of this document is to provide methods for verifying that NCs, NTs, switches, cables, and connectors comply with the physical layer requirements of AS5653B. Note that AS5653B makes extensive reference to the various Fibre Channel standards. In the context of the MIL-STD-1760 interfaces, AS5653B is referred to as a "bus." In the context of Fibre Channel, AS5653B is referred to as a "network."
