This thesis describes the design and implementation of a token-ring fiber optic local area network (LAN) interface module. The token-ring protocol implementing the IEEE 802.5 standard is reviewed. The initial LAN electrical signal operating at 4 Mbps is provided by a LAN adapter card based on the TMS380 chipset developed for twisted pair copper wire. This design features analog implementations of both the input electrical circuitry of the optical transmitter and output electrical circuitry of the optical receiver. Successful LAN communications over the fiber optic link are described.
