Description :

The TPMC378 is a conduction cooled single-width 32 bit PMC module offering 8 channels of high performance RS422 asynchronous serial interface with P14 I/O. Each of the eight channels is isolated from the system and against each other by isolated transceivers with integrated DC/DC converters. Each RS422 channel supports a four wire interface (RX+, RX-, TX+, TX-) plus ground (GND). Two channels additionally support flow control with RTS+/- and CTS+/-. Each channel has 64 byte transmit and receive FIFOs to significantly reduce the overhead required to provide data to and get data from the transmitters and receivers. The FIFO trigger levels are programmable and the baud rate is individually programmable up to 5.5296 Mbps for RS422 channels. The UART offers readable FIFO levels. All channels generate interrupts on PCI interrupt INTA. For fast interrupt source detection the UART provides a special Global Interrupt Source Register.

All serial channels use ESD protected transceivers. ESD protection is up to ±15KV. The TPMC378 can operate with 3.3V and 5.0V PCI I/O signalling voltage. Software Support (TDRV002-SW-xx) for different operating systems is available.
