General Description

The Blastronix 232/422 16 port Video Controller unit is a single slot PCI-X bus card with 16 ports of 422/232 serial functionality. Two VHDCI 68 pin connectors are on the card which connect to two 8 port splitter or “octopus” cables. The included cables have a VHDCI 68 on one end (connects to the card) and 8 DB9 male connectors fanning out opposite the VHDCI 68. The cable length is 1 meter. The 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 interface supports the popular SMPTE pin-out so that each port looks like the controller and can be plugged directly into 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.  Selection between RS232 or RS422 is achieved with a click of the mouse in the device manager for each port. There are no on board jumpers to contend with. In RS-232 mode, the pin-out is for a DTE device and supports all modem control signals. The 16 port unit is RoHS compliant.  A 16 port 2RU rack panel for the DB9 connectors is available as well.    

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.
