The Buffer Control Chip (BCC)

The BCC chip receives as input the main BCO clock @40 MHz and it can deliver a 80 MHz DCLK. It then multiplexes the data coming from the two columns of one hybrid onto a 80/160 MHz data line (depending on the DCLK frequency selected, 40/80 MHz). The BCC has a 5-bit hardware address and one can perform read/write operations on its 16-bit configuration register. The BCC also receives a L1R signal which is de-multiplexed into the reset (RESETB) and trigger (L1) signals to be delivered to the ABCN chips. After a power-reset, the chip is disabled for 512 cycles of the BCO clock.
