Abstract

One of the dificulties in assembling a system of addressable nodes, such as a multiplexed bus, is the initial assignment of unique addresses to (initially) identical nodes. Because initially the nodes are all programmed at (say) address 00000, then there is no way to distinguish between different units after the bus has been assembled, but no IDS have been programmed. Here is one technique to allow nodes to be distinguished.
