Our Emerald-MM PC/104 module gives you 4 serial ports operating at speeds up to 115kbps. The board is available in several models with different combinations of jumper-configurable serial protocols. This version (EMM-4M-XT) provides:
- All ports: each port configurable as RS-232/422/485 (set via jumper)
In RS-232 mode, the full complement of standard PC serial port signals (8 signals + ground) are provided for each port and are grouped onto two 20-pin headers (2 ports per header). In RS-422 mode, Signals RX+, RX-, TX+, and TX- are provided, along with ground. In RS-485 mode, signals TX+/RX+ and TX-/RX- are provided, along with ground.
A 16C554 quad serial port IC is used for the serial ports. This chip supports data transfer rates up to 115kbps and contains a 16-byte programmable FIFO buffer for each port to minimize processor overhead.
