These 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. RTS/CTS handshake support for modem control is also included.

For more efficient data processing, each serial port is equipped with 256-character FIFO buffers on the transmit and receive lines. The large buffers minimize CPU interaction for improved system performance 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.

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 of the existing Industry Pack modules and a rugged form factor.

AcroPack modules are only 30mm wide and 70mm long. This is just 19.05mm longer than a full length mini PCIe card but the same width. AcroPacks also use standard mPCIe board hold down standoffs 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.

Performance Specifications

Serial Ports

Configuration: Four independent, isolated RS232 serial communication ports configured as a DTE device.
Isolation: Each port has 250V of isolation from digital circuitry and100V of isolation from the other 3 ports.
UART: 16550-compatible Exar 17v354.
Transceivers: Four Analog Devices LTM2882 galvanically isolated dual RS232 transceivers compatible with the TIA/EIA-232-F standard.
Data Rate: Programmable up to 1M bits/second using internal baud rate generator.
Max. Cable Length: 15 meters (50 feet) typical, limited to a cable capacitive load of 2500pF.
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 receive FIFO buffer and 256-byte transmit FIFO buffer.
Interrupts: Receiver line status (overrun, parity, framing error, or break interrupt); received data available (FIFO level reached) or character time-out; transmitter (FIFO level reached); or modern status (CTS).

PCI Express Base Specification

Conforms to revision 2.0
Lanes: 1 lane in each direction.
Bus Speed: 2.5 Gbps (Generation 1).
Memory: 4k space required. 1 base address register.

Environmental

Operating temperature: -40 to 85°C with minimum airflow of 200LFM. (Conduction-cooled applications require heatsink kit, Model AP-CC-01).
Storage temperature: -55 to 125°C.
Relative humidity: 5 to 95% non-condensing.

Power
3.3V (±5%) 130mA idle, 200mA typical.
Internal Isolated Power
Isolated power is created onboard using LTM2882 Isolated Transceiver Power, so isolated power does not need to be supplied externally.

MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure)
MTBF in hours using MIL-HDBK-217F, FN2. Per MIL-HDBK-217, Ground Benign, Controlled, GBGC.

25°C:
6,957,683 MTBF hours (794.3 MTBF years).
143.7 failure rate (FIT1).

40°C:
4,548,928 MTBF hours (519.3 MTBF years).
219.8 failure rate (FIT1).

Note 1: FIT is Failures in 109 hours.

  • 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.
