WinSystems Introduces PCM-SDIO PC/104 Compliant Module

WinSystems rolled out the PCM-SDIO module. The PCM-SDIO is PC/104-compliant and features four asynchronous serial ports and forty-eight lines of digital I/O. It is based on a FPGA with both 16C554 UART and WS16C48 digital I/O-compatible cores. The WinSystems PCM-SDIO is a replacement and is pin compatible for the company’s PCM-UIO48A and PCM-COM4A serial and parallel PC/104 compatible I/O boards. The PCM-SDIO-144 PC/104-compliant module is available now for $249 each.

All four serial channels on the PCM-SDIO support RS-232, RS-422, and RS-485 signal levels. The RS-422/485 configuration provides user configurable terminations for balanced transmit and receive signal pairs for longer distance serial communications. Each channel supports 5-, 6-, 7-, or 8-bit characters with even, odd or no parity generation and checking. Independent on-chip software programmable baud rate generators support each channel with data rates through 115,200 bits per second.
