EPMCQ2, a member of the EmPower™ family, is a PowerQUICC II-based PMC providing a cost-effective solution for applications requiring multiple high-speed serial communications interfaces. Fully rugged for defense and aerospace applications, EPMCQ2 also offers significant PowerPC processing capability all within an industry standard PMC form factor. EPMCQ2 provides four high-speed serial channels, capable of RS232, RS422, RS485 operation (software selectable), and configurable for synchronous or asynchronous operation. Two additional channels provide an asynchronous capability useful for development debug and deployed operation on lower traffic lines. A single 10/100BaseT Ethernet channel completes the array of communications options. EPMCQ2's onboard processing power (embedded 603e core) and memory resources are provided such that the protocol overheads associated with typical serial communication formats can be off-loaded from the host CPU.
