A key member of Radstone's EmPowerTM family, which offers a range of cost-conscious, comms-orientated products, EPMCQ2 provides a cost- effective solution for applications requiring multiple high speed serial comms interfaces. Fully rugged for defense and aerospace applications, EPMCQ2 also offers significant PowerPC processing capability all within an industry standard PMC form factor.
EPMCQ2 offers four high speed serial channels, capable of RS232, 422, 485 operation (software selectable), and configurable for synchronous or asynchronous operation. A further two channels provide an additional asynchronous capability useful for development debug and deployed operation on lower traffic lines. A single 10/100 Base-T Ethernet channel completes the array of communications options. EPMCQ2's onboard processing power (embedded 603e core) and memory resources are provided such that the protocol overheads associated with typical serial communication formats can be off-loaded from the host CPU.
COTS software support includes Radstone's industry leading Deployed Test software and async and sync (HDLC) operation under popular operating systems including VxWorks.
