9.2 EXTENSIONS TO A AND C BIT HANDLING

The option bit, MAC_MODE_CTL, in control register B and the TR_BR_FWD input signal
give the MAC extended capabilities for handling the A and C bit fields at the end of
received frames (Table 9-1). These extensions are particularly useful for certain bridging
protocols.
When RABORT2 in control register B is a one, the ADDR16 output becomes an input,
RABORT2, with the same functionality as the RABORT input.
