This thesis describes a novel architecture for an ultra-compact "Add-Drop/Terminal Multiplexer" for "Synchronous Digital Hierarchy" telecommunication networks. The new architecture allows to integrate all digital functions (except the System Control Unit) into one ASIC. The key features that made a "System-On-Chip" solution feasible are: A novel protection scheme, which lessens the inter-card traffic and allows the use of smaller switch matrices, a new data path architecture, which needs just one single buffer with integrated switch matrix functionality, and an embedded processor, which substitutes various large hardware blocks.
