Can anyone educate me on biconic connectors. Could these be used for 1gig Ethernet or are there any recommendations against it? I hope this question is not out of this forum's focus -----Original Message----- From: pat_thaler@xxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:pat_thaler@xxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Thursday, May 30, 2002 10:38 AM To: David.Barral@xxxxxxxxxxxx; stds-802-3-hssg@xxxxxxxx Subject: RE: [802.3ae] FCS representation in walker_1_p0700.pdf David, The MAC layer transmits bytes LSB first. It computes the CRC in transmited bit order (first bit transmitted is the most significant coefficient) and it puts the CRC into bytes such that the CRC is transmitted in order from most significant coefficient to least significant coefficient. That is, the x^31 coefficient of the CRC is placed in the LSB of the first byte and the x^0 coefficient is placed in the MSB of the fourth CRC byte.

As mentioned in the section 3.3 of the IEEE 302.3 standard, "Each octet of the MAC frame, with the exception of the FCS, is transmitted low-order bit first". Given that, in the 64b/66b test vector given in walker_1_p0700.pdf, the four bytes corresponding to the FCS position are 93 eb f7 79. In the same 64b/66b test vector given in walker_1_p0700.pdf, looking at the PCS scrambled "frame", it seems that the FCS values at the input of the scrambler are c9 d7 ef 9e. That would mean that the FCS value is c9 d7 ef 9e and that the FCS is represented LSBit first at the MAC layer level. Hence, I simply would like to know the following: - Considering the 93 eb f7 79 byte sequence, does the MAC layer transmit each byte LSBit or MSBit first? - If the MAC layer transmit them LSBit first, can anybody confirm that the FCS value is then c9 d7 ef 9e. Thanks very much, David.
