General Description

The Blastronix 422/4S-32 GPIO card is a single slot PCI-X bus card with essentially 8 ports of IO functionality.  A splitter or “octopus” cable is supplied with a DB62 on one end (connects to the card) and 4 DB9 female connectors and 2 DB25 female connectors fanning out opposite the DB62. The 4 serial ports are installed as standard COM(X) devices that look like standard serial ports to the computer and any application software. Therefore the ports are compatible with any application which already knows how to communicate with serial ports. The ports feature a DCE/DTE selectable SMPTE pin-out so that each port can look like the controller or the deck type device using a standard DB9 pin straight through cable.  Each port is capable of multi-drop functionality and can communicate with up to 32 slave devices at speeds up to 920k baud.

These cards feature the Oxford Semiconductor high performance UARTs with user configurable 128 byte FIFOs on board and both transmit and receive interrupt control levels. This allows the user to control how many bytes are received or sent before the onboard FIFO generates an interrupt back to the operating system.  Complete driver source code and example code for communicating with the serial ports can be supplied upon request

The GPIO ports are arranged in 8 bit banks on the DB25 female connectors. The first 8 bits out (GPOs) and 8 bits in (GPIs) are at the same IO address on the first DB25. The second bank of 8 & 8 are the second DB25. The GPOs are optically isolated and are pulled up onboard to 5V or the user may elect to supply the pull-up voltage from the remote device through our onboard 2.2k resistors. Similarly, the low side of the GPOs can be connected to ground on board or the low side of the optical isolators can be supplied by the remote device. Each bank can be set-up independently. The GPIs are simply TTL inputs connected to 2.2K pull-up resistors. Complete driver source code and example code for communicating with the GPIOs can be supplied upon request. These units are RoHS compliant.
