Abstract

IEEE 802.3 specification requires the Media Access Controller (MAC) to meet the following four criterions for the Truncated Binary Exponential Back-off Algorithm (TBEB) in half duplex mode. This implementation uses two 10-bit controlled LFSRs. Since a 10-bit LFSR counts only up to 1023 counts.
