High-performance Serial I/O (to 10Mbits/sec) with Deep FIFOs
Please Note: The cPCI-SIO4ARHM is now considered End of Life. For more information, please read the End of Life document for this product.
For future designs, we recommend the PMC66-SIO4BXR on a cPCI adapter
The CPCI-SIO4ARHM and its transition module make a four channel full-duplex
RS-422/485 serial board set. Each serial channel of the CPCI-SIO4ARHM can
operate up to 10 Mbits/s in synchronous mode. Optional 32 Kbyte FIFO buffer
for both transmit and receive (256 Kbytes Total FIFOs) data on each channel provides for a smooth and efficient interface between the serial interfaces and the host computer. The board is based on the Zilog Z16C30 high speed Integrated Universal Serial Controller (USC) which supports Asynchronous, Isochronous, Bisync, Monosync, HDLC, SDLC, External Sync and Nine-Bit protocols. The USC chip provides full duplex operation with baud rate generators, digital phase-locked loop for clock recovery and a full duplex
DMA interface. One of the rear transition module is required and is priced
separately. The module is available with RS-422/485 or RS-232 transceivers.
Contact General Standards for pricing and availability. The CPCI-SIO4ARHM also has a PMC host site to allow customers to create more compact system solutions. Customers can mount any PMC board, including General Standard's PMC-SIO4A board. The CPCI-SIO4ARHM and the PMC-SIO4A
combination will provide eight serial ports in a single CPCI slot.
