3U CompactPCI isolated asynchronous serial I/O modules for military COTS introduced by TEWS Technologies
HALSTENBEK, Germany, 21 Jan. 2011. TEWS Technologies GmbH in Halstenbek, Germany, is introducing two isolated asynchronous serial 3U CompactPCI modules for applications in military COTS, transportation, communications, and industrial process control. The TCP469 and TCP470 32-bit 3U CompactPCI board products offer eight- or four-channel high-performance serial interfaces.
Each RS232 channel supports RxD, TxD, RTS, CTS and GND. RS422 and RS485 full duplex support a four-wire interface (RX+, RX-, TX+, TX-) plus ground (GND). Half Duplex supports a two wire interface (DX+, DX-) plus ground (GND). All channels generate interrupts on PCI interrupt INTA. For fast interrupt source detection the UART provides a special Global Interrupt Source Register.
The modules offer front panel I/O with a HD50 SCSI-2 type connector. Each of the channels are isolated from the system and against each other by digital isolator and on board integrated DC/DC converter. The TCP469 and TCP470 operate in temperatures from -40 to 85 degrees Celsius.
