IO60-COM4

Description

The IO60-COM4 is a four channel asynchronous serial module supporting RS-232, RS-422, and RS-485 serial standards. The module utilizes high-speed serial peripheral interface (SPI™) and I2C interfaces to provide serial expansion for single board computers with the IO60 connector. The flexible design uses jumperless configuration and is compatible with both ARM and x86 single board computers.

Features

  • Four independent asynchronous serial channels
  • Each serial channel supports:
    • 128-word Transmit and Receive FIFOs
    • RS-232, RS-422 or RS-485D
    • Programmable baud rates up to 5.5 Mbps
    • CTS, RTS, DSR, DTR, RI and DCD (RS-232)
  • No external resistors required for RS-485/422 termination
  • RS-485/422 Enhanced Fail-safe for inputs
  • ±15kV ESD Protection Human Body Model (HBM)
  • Industrial -40° to +85°C operational temperature
