GPS+7-Channel Serial I/O and 8-Channel Serial I/O Adapters
 

PDF print version of this specification : A4 or Letter

The GPS+7-Channel Serial I/O Adapter incorporates an integrated GPS (Global Positioning Service) receiver. This adapter also has seven user configurable serial I/O channels, with the eighth being dedicated to communication with the onboard GPS receiver.

The 8-Channel Serial I/O Adapter provides eight channels of simultaneous, bidirectional UART (Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter) serial communications. All channels are individually configurable as RS-232/485 by means of a DIP switch. 

The adapters are available in the following range of industry standard compliant formfactors :

  • PMC
    • Air-coolded PMC adapter with frontpanel I/O (IEEE Std 1386.1-2001)
    • Conduction-Cooled PMC (CCPMC) adapter with backplane I/O (ANSI/VITA 20-2001)
    • Conduction-Cooled PMC adapter with frontpanel I/O (requires modification to host carrier)
  • PCI-104 (PCI-104 v2.0)
  • PCI (PCI Local Bus Specification Rev. 2.3)

Architecture

Both Serial I/O Adapters employ a high performance, industry standard 16550 compatible, 8-channel PCI-based UART. The UART serial channels are connected to both RS-232 and RS-485 transceivers. The transceivers are enabled / disabled by onboard programmable logic, according to a user specified code which is entered into a configuration DIP (Dual In-line Package) switch.

Features

  • Cost-effective option for systems that require a large number of UART compatible serial communication links

  • Allows direct low-level control of the serial communication links

  • The adapter can implement many different combinations of RS-232 and RS-485 communications interfaces x simultaneously

Applications

  • Distributed real-time applications in harsh environments

  • Mission-critical applications

  • Avionics

  • Remote Access Servers
