TPMC465, TPMC466, TPMC467

TPMC465, TPMC466, TPMC467 PMC Module with 4 or 8 Port Serial RS232/422/485 Controller with Programmable Interfaces

4 or 8 channel high performance serial controller with individually programmable RS232, RS422, and RS485 interfaces. The four ports on the TPMC467 are available with RJ-45 connector. The PMC modules have an operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C.

RS232 channels support RxD, TxD, RTS, and CTS, and RS422 channels support RxD+/- and TxD+/-. RS485 channels can operate in 4-wire full duplex or 2-wire half duplex mode. The modules have front I/O via a HD50 connector and P14 I/O or on the TPMC467 via four RJ45 connectors.

Each channel has 64 byte transmit and receive FIFOs. The FIFO trigger thresholds, and the baud rates are individually programmable: up to 921.6 kbps for RS232 channels, and 5.5296 Mbps for RS422/485 channels. All channels generate interrupts on PCI interrupt INTA. For fast interrupt source detection the UART provides a special global interrupt source register. All channels use transceivers with 15 KV ESD protection.

A wide range of drivers is available for the TPMC465 and TPMC466: Linux, Integrity, QNX, VxWorks and Windows. All drivers - except the Windows drivers - are supplied as C source code.

The modules are also available with conduction cooling as TPMC375/376, and as TCP465/466 modules in 3U CompactPCI form factor.
