The E497R is a PC/104-format digital I/O module available in two configurations: 48 I/O TTL channels and 16 High-Current Outputs and 16 Optoinsulated Inputs. Both configurations contain two 82C55 ICs, each having three 8-bits software configurable I/O ports. Each 82C55 has its own 50-pin I/O header for external connections. The ports direction can be selected by programming control registers built into the 82C55 chip. The I/O headers are organized to allow direct interfacing to OPTO-22 standard.
The M429R module is a PC/104 16-bit high performance Ethernet interface. It integrates an Ethernet NE2000 compatible controller with installed both 10BaseT (twisted pair) and 10Base2 (coaxial) interfaces. From Setup it is possible to select address and interrupt line, moreover it is possible to select the transmission media and to autodetect the connection cable. The 10Base2 interface is available through an additional module installed on board. If only 10BaseT interface is selected, the 10Base2 module is disabled in order to reduce the module power consumption.
The M429R comes with drivers for a wide variety of networks ands operating systems.
The M435R module (such as M440R) is an ARCNET network interface module based on COM20020 controller and is an ideal solution for applications such as industrial control, building automation, transportation, robotics and gaming. For extended functionality, moreover, the M435R module is provided with 8 programmable Outputs and 4 standard RS-232C Full modem serial ports. Each of these serial ports can be configured to use standard addresses for COMS ports or can be software configured to be mapped at user chosen addresses. Also the IRQ’s can be SW configured, so that the ports can use different IRQ lines or share an unique line.
The M441R module is a low-cost, high-performance CAN interface board that provides access to a wide range of CAN applications for PC/104 systems. The module is based on the Intel® CAN controller 82527. The 82527 controller is a highly integrated device that performs all serial communication functions such as transmission and reception of messages, message filtering on extended message frames, transmit search and interrupt search with minimal interaction from the CPU.
The M442R module is a low-cost integrated module which offers the chance of expanding the communication possibilities of a PC/104 based system. The M442R module integrates 4 serial ports: two of them are RS-232C standard serial ports in a Full Modem configuration.
