Dennis B James, Bryan S Moffitt, Douglas C Smith: Distributed time division multiplexing bus. AT&T Bell Laboratories, David H Tannenbaum, October 2, 1984: US04475191 (18 worldwide citation)

High density time division busses suffer from many problems, one of which is that impedance discontinuities cause signal reflections to occur along the bus. These reflections, in turn, affect the settling time and noise margins of the bus and thus reduce the time "window" in which valid signals may ...
