The TCP463 is a standard 3U 32 bit CompactPCI module and offers 4 channels of high performance asynchronous serial interface.

Three different standard modules are available: The TCP463-10R provides 4 RS232 interfaces. The TCP463-11R provides 4 RS422 interfaces. The TCP463-12R provides 2 RS232 and 2 RS422 interfaces.

Other configurations are available as factory build option on a per channel base.

All modules offer front panel I/O with four RJ45 connectors. The TCP463-2xR modules offer additional J2 rear I/O. Each RS232 channel supports TxD, RxD, CTS, RTS, DTR, CD, DSR/RI and GND. Each RS422 channel supports RxD+/-, TxD+/- and GND on front and RxD+/-, TxD+/-, RTS+/-, CTS+/- and GND on rear I/O.

Each channel has 64 byte transmit and receive FIFOs to significantly reduce the overhead required to provide data to and get data from the transmitters and receivers. The FIFO trigger levels are programmable and the baud rate is individually programmable up to 921.6 kbps for RS232 channels and 5.5296 Mbps for RS422 channels. The UART offers readable FIFO levels.

All channels generate interrupts on CompactPCI interrupt INTA. For fast interrupt source detection the UART provides a special Global Interrupt Source Register.

All serial channels use ESD protected transceivers up to ±15KV.

The TCP463 can operate with 3.3V and 5.0V PCI I/O signaling voltage.

Software Support (TDRV002-SW-xx) for different operating systems is available.
