P-SER Interface

12-channel RS-485/422/232



P-SER Serial Communications PMC Interface


P-SER I/O product is a native PMC form factor interface providing real-time serial input and output with high time-precision reception/input time-stamping, scheduled transmission/output, event triggering and interrupt support. This interface is designed to meet the needs of both the simulations/test and the real-time embedded applications whether in Windows or VxWorks environments. Optionally available on PCI, cPCI and PCI Express backplane carriers, the P-SER products are distributed with an API library and source code, and are compatible with both Windows and VxWorks operating systems.

  • IRIG-B input and generator
  • Conductively-cooled configurations available
  • PCI, cPCI and PCI Express carrier options
  • Operation up to 10 MHz
  • Flexible transmit command processor supporting message scheduling, delays and triggers
  • Advanced API with support for Windows 7, Vista, XP, Linux, VxWorks and Integrity
  • Eight avionics-level discrete I/O lines
  • 12 independent RS-232/422/485 channels
  • Large 2 Mbyte buffering shared between channels
  • High density serial communications PMC Interface
  • Carrier card options available: PCI (-X), 3U cPCI (-3) and PCI Express (-U)
