    PMC 34 Channels in one slot
    PMC-BiSerial-VI-UART

    8 UART I/O ports each consisting of RS-485 transmit and receive data. [LVDS is an ordering option] The UART interface uses a 16x clock to detect received data bits. Received data is filtered with the port reference clock to remove line glitches. The interface can operate at up to 2 Mbits/second using a 32 MHz clock. Reference clock for each port is selectable between the 32 MHz reference and a user programmed PLL frequency. Each UART port has 255 x 32 FIFO for transmit and another 255x32 for receive in addition to Packet Definition FIFO´s. DMA support on all channels. 5 modes can be selected per fully independent node: Standard UART (unpacked), Packed, Packetized, Alternate Packetized, and Test. Options for Bezel and Rear IO.

  • UnPacked mode 8 bit data is assumed mimicking standard UART operation
  • Packed mode 32 bit data is assumed allowing 4 characters to be read/written at a time.
  • Packetized mode allows for non-LW data lengths, and retains most of the efficiency of LW packing. Odd lengths [non LW boundaries] are loaded with the complete LW´s first then the remainder. The Packet length FIFO is programmed with the length to send. The Packet lengths can be loaded to transmit with minimal HW delay between Packets or with a programmed delay.
  • Alternate Packetized mode uses 3 bytes per LW and has the packet descriptor information built into the 4th byte.
  • Test mode SW controls the output pattern to allow for programmed errors on certain characters sent.

  • Programmable timers are available to control the time between packets sent and as a master timer to start new bursts of packets. In addition the Alternate Packet mode supports automatic tristate control and automatic transmit enable/disable to support the packet burst timing. Please see the HW manual for more information.
