Data Rates up to 460.8 KBd on four Insulated EIA-232 Channels
The TEWS TPMC860 is a standard single-width 32 bit PMC module with a four channel high performance RS232 interface. All four channels are insulated from the system and against each other by optocouplers and DC/DC converters.

The serial channels are accessible through a DB25 connector mounted in the front panel as well as via P14. Each channel has a 64 byte transmit FIFO and a 64 byte receive FIFO. The FIFO trigger thresholds are programmable. The baud rate is individually programmable up to 460.8 KBd for each channel.

All channels generate interrupts on PCI interrupt INTA. For fast interrupt source detection the TPMC860 provides a special interrupt status register.

A wide range of drivers is available: Linux, LynxOS, QNX, VxWorks and Windows. All drivers - except the Windows drivers - are supplied as C source code.
