AP512 modules provide four isolated serial communication ports from a single AP carrier slot for a high-density solution. Software-configuration helps you quickly set baud rates, character-sizes, stop bits, and parity.

For more efficient data processing, each serial port is equipped with 256-character FIFO buffers on the transmit and receive lines.

The data ports generate individually controlled transmit, receive, line status, data set, and flow control interrupts. All interrupts can be read from a single register.

Designed for COTS applications these quad serial RS422b mezzanine modules deliver high-density, high-reliability, and high-performance at a low cost.

The AcroPack® product line updates our popular Industry Pack I/O modules with a PCIe interface format. This tech-refresh design offers a compact size, low-cost I/O, the same functionality and memory map of the existing Industry Pack modules and a rugged form factor.

The AP512 series modules are 70mm long. This is 19.05mm longer than the full length mini PCIe card at 50.95mm. The boards width is the same as mPCIe board of 30mm and they use the same mPCIe standard board hold down standoff and screw keep out areas.

A down facing 100 pin Samtec connector mates with the carrier card. Fifty of these pins are available for field I/O signals. Pin spacing and signal assignments will allow for 100V of port to port isolation.

The AP512 series maintains the same functionality and memory map of the existing Industry Pack modules providing a smooth transition to the AcroPack I/O modules.

AcroPack modules are RoHS compliant and ideal for military, defense, automation, aerospace, scientific, and development labs industries.

Performance Specifications

Serial Ports

Configuration: Independent, isolated serial ports.
Data Rate: 16M bits/second, maximum.
Max. Cable Length: 1200 meters (4000 feet) typical.
Character size: 5 to 8 bits, software-programmable.
Parity: Odd, even, or no parity; software-programmable.
Stop bits: 1, 1-1/2, or 2 bits; software-programmable.
Data register buffers: 256-byte FIFO buffer.
Interrupts: Receiver line status (overrun, parity, framing error, or break interrupt); receive/transmit FIFO level reached or character time-out; Xon/Xoff or special character detected.

PCI Express Base Specification

Conforms to revision 2.0
Lanes: 1 lane in each direction.
Bus Speed: 2.5 Gbps (Generation 1).
Memory: 8k space required. 1 base address register.

Environmental

Operating temperature: -40 to 70°C. -40 to 85°C (requires an AcroPack heatsink conduction-cool kit).

  • Description

    An application programming interface with function routines for AcroPack modules/carriers. Customizable for other operating systems.

    Function Libraries for VxWorks

    Acromag’s software development tools greatly simplify the interface between AcroPack I/O boards and your application program. Libraries provide easy-to-use C function routines that quickly integrate with your application. The C functions are ready for use “as-is,” but they are also easily customized for your unique application.

    DLL Driver for Windows

    This package provides DLL driver level support for Acromag’s line of AcroPack products.

    AcroPack Windows Driver Software consists of low – level drivers and Windows Dynamic Link Libraries (DLLs) that facilitate the development of Windows applications accessing Acromag AcroPack I/O modules.

    The software includes kernel drivers and DLLs for both 32 and 64-bit versions of Windows. Applications developed to run on 32-bit versions of Windows use the 32-bit kernel drivers and 32-bit DLLs. Applications developed to run on 64-bit versions of Windows use the 64-bit kernel drivers and either the 32-bit or 64-bit DLLs. Except where noted otherwise, the usage of the 32-bit and 64-bit DLLs is identical.
