This is something I wrote for some coworkers in an effort to describe why the telephone signalling system is full of what appears to be arbitrary cruft and inconsistency. I thought it might be worth poasting.

I've been needing this part for a long time now. So I've finally gotten around to doing the design work and making a production-worthy module.

The top plate in the radio box holds the bulk of the custom circuitry for the car computer. Mounted to it, we have the public address (PA) amplifier, the DC/DC for the amplifier, my hand-built filter and audio-level shifter, the main CPU board, the audio board, and a handful of regulators and MOSFETs.
