Isolated Quad RS232 Serial Communication Modules in Ruggedized Mini PCIe Form Factor

The AcroPack® product line updates our popular Industry Pack I/O modules with a PCIe interface format. This tech-refresh design offers a compact size, low-cost I/O, the same functionality of the existing Industry Pack modules and a rugged form factor.

These modules provide four isolated serial communication ports from a single AP carrier slot for a high-density solution. Software-configuration helps you quickly set baud rates, character-sizes, stop bits, and parity. RTS/CTS handshake support for modem control is also included.

For more efficient data processing, each serial port is equipped with 256-character FIFO buffers on the transmit and receive lines. The large buffers minimize CPU interaction for improved system performance The data ports generate individually controlled transmit, receive, line status, data set, and flow control interrupts. All interrupts can be read from a single register.

AcroPack modules are only 30mm wide and 70mm long. This is just 19.05mm longer than a full length mini PCIe card but the same width. AcroPacks also use standard mPCIe board hold down standoffs and screw keep out areas. A down facing 100 pin Samtec connector mates with the carrier card. Fifty of these pins are available for field I/O signals. Pin spacing and signal assignments will allow for 100V of port to port isolation.

Features
  • Four isolated RS232 serial ports
  • Each port isolated (250V) from digital circuitry and (100V) from the other 3 ports
  • Internal isolated power created onboard
  • Exar Quad UART with 16550-compatible register set
  • 256-byte TX and RX FIFOs with programmable triggers for improved system performance
  • Programmable baud rate (up to 1Mbps) on each channel with fractional divisors
  • Interrupt support with individually controlled transmit, receive, line status, and data set interrupts
  • Each channel provides handshake support (RTS, CTS) to simplify interfacing with modems
  • General purpose 16-bit timer/counter with internal 125MHz clock supporting single-shot, re-trigger, and interrupts
  • Line-break and false start-bit detectionExar
