Abstract

In those communication systems in which a plurality of transmitting stations communicate with a receiving station in a time-division multiplex mode of operation, the need for an efficient coupling between the stations and a shared digital communications bus has become apparent. This article describes a simple driver/ receiver circuit arrangement which minimizes power consumption and is compatible with the optocoupling technique.
