A local smart sensor bus is described which is designed for use in
a multi-chip-composed microinstrumentation system. The bus is capable
of handling information in digital code, bitstream, analog voltage,
and frequency or duty cycle modulation and also provides calibration
facilities, service-request and interrupt-request modes. The resulting
sensor bus interface has been implemented in a 1.6 um CMOS process
and successfully tested in a local sensor network.
