Hi, Bruce, I think you have a point. To the best of my knowledge, the polynomial to be used is as specified in O.150. I think it might be useful to the reader if we had a (non-normative, superseded by O.150 in case of conflict) statement that provided the polynomial itself as well as the PRBS length. If you could submit such a comment against the next draft, that would be very useful. Ditto for the 2**31 - 1 polynomial. Cheers, - Tom -----Original Message----- From: Nepple, Bruce [mailto:bnepple@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Monday, February 04, 2002 11:43 AM To: stds-802-3-hssg@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: RE: [802.3ae] WIS test Pattern PRBS Generator Polynomial Ouch --- I missed that comment. Thanks for pointing it out. My issue was that there are MANY 2**23-1 polynomials. Which one specifically is preferred or required was not specified, and there was no comment indicating that the choice was implementation dependent or to be determined in the future.
