8-Channel and 4-Channel New Generation Ultra High-Speed Serial I/O Adapters
 

PDF print version of this specification : A4 or Letter

The 8-Channel and 4-Channel New Generation Ultra High-Speed Serial I/O Adapters provide four or eight channels of simultaneous, high-speed (>20 Mbit/s), bi-directional serial communications. All channels are jumper configurable as RS232/422/485. These adapters also support a number of UART (Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter) (<1 Mbit/s) channels.

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

The 8-Channel and 4-Channel Ultra High-Speed Serial I/O Adapters are intelligent adapters designed with Motorola PowerQUICC II Integrated PowerPC Microprocessors as communication controllers. The PowerQUICC II processor can easily be configured to implement different serial protocols, thus allowing the adapters to keep up with technological advances. All ultra high-speed serial I/O channels are implemented using the PowerQUICC II.

Features

  • Cost-effective and flexible option for systems that require both high-speed, real-time communication links as well as some low-speed serial links

  • Offers independent I/O processing offboard the host

Conduction-Cooling

The conduction-cooled 8-Channel and New Generation 4-Channel Ultra High-Speed Serial I/O PMC Adapter conforms to the CCPMC (Conduction-Cooled PCI Mezzanine Card) Standard, namely ANSI/VITA 20-2001.

Applications

  • Distributed real-time applications in harsh environments

  • Mission-critical applications

  • Avionics

  • Vetronics

  • High-speed sensor integration
