The Advanced Micro Devices TAXI chip set was chosen as the serial interface for the Fast Packet Switch. In order to fully understand the operation of the chip set, and in order to fully characterize the chip set's operation, several tests were performed using actual TAXI components. These tests included TAXI-to-TAXI tests and tests with optical data links. The operation of the asynchronous transmitter handshake was also investigated in detail. The results of these tests indicate that the TAXI chip set is well built and very reliable.
