This paper discusses the fiber optic specifications for the Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI) standard being developed by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). Analytical and empirical techniques used to derive the bandwidth and timing parameters for the optical data link specifications are described. An iterative process, involving tradeoffs between the transmitter, fiber, and receiver specifications, has resulted in a workable standard that is achievable within the current component vendor base.
