The IRIG 106 Programming Handbook presents a general overview of IRIG 106 conformance requirements. For the purposes of validation more detailed requirement are necessary. The logical and physical interfaces identified in the Programming Handbook are each assigned a numerical requirements section. For example, the “Media File Interface” is assigned requirements Section 10. The table below, adapted from the Programming Handbook, is a summary of physical and logical interfaces along with the assigned requirements section of each.
|LOGICAL INTERFACE REQUIREMENTS|
|Requirements Section||Ch 10 Section||Logical Interfaces|
|1||10.5||Media File Interface|
|2||10.6||Packetization & Data Format|
|Requirements Section||Ch 10 Section||Physical Interfaces|
|TBD||10.3, 10.4.1||Recorder Fibre Channel|
|TBD||10.4.2||Recorder IEEE 1394B|
|TBD||10.4, 10.4.3||Recorder Ethernet (on board)|
|TBD||10.3.5, 10.3.6||Removable Memory Media (RMM)|
|TBD||10.3.2, 10.7.10||Discrete Lines|
|TBD||10.3.2||RS-232 and 422 Full Duplex Communication|
|TBD||10.3||External Power Port|
Top level requirements may have subsections of requirements. For example, requirement Section 2 “Packetization & Data Format” will be composed of a general packet requirements subsection as well as subsections for each packet type. Requirement subsections are defined and numbered by appending a dot “.” to the parent section followed by a sequential subsection number.
Individual detailed requirements organized under the appropriate section and subsection. An individual requirement is identified by a section/subsection number, followed by a dash “-”, followed by a sequential requirement number. For example, the first requirement of the “Packetization & Data Format” section, “General Packet Requirements” subsection may be 2.1-1.
