Abstract

For converting a serial data flow with, for example, a 5_bit word structure (Fig. 1) into a parallel data flow with, for example, a 3/=/bit parallel structure (Fig. 2) and comprising in serial notation (Fig. 3) some tables (Fig. 4) have to be prepared, whose number corresponds to the number of parallel bits, in this case 3 Each table has as many entries (rows) as there are bits to the base of 2 in a word (in this case, 2/5 /= 32). Each entry in this example consists of 5 3/=/bit fields. (The digits 5 and 3/= correspond to the previously underlined values.)
