The XPort1003 is an intelligent communications controller targetinghigh-performance under extreme operating conditions. The XPort1003 combines a wide array of supported serial protocols, a broad range of serial interface standards, and a flexible I/O routing structure to pack maximum flexibility into an industry-standard, conduction-cooled PMC module.Powered by the NXP (formerly Freescale) PowerQUICC™ II MPC8270, the XPort1003 implements four serial communication ports, each providing a reduced EIA-530-A-compatible signal set. It supports HDLC/SDLC, UART, transparent, and BiSync modes, with NRZ, NRZI, FM0, FM1, Manchester, and Differential Manchester encoding. Coupled with software-configurable support for RS-232, RS-422, RS-485, and MIL-STD-188-114 balanced type 2 mode, the XPort1003 provides a wide range of serial options.The XPort1003 will minimize both the cost and power consumption of your system. Since the PCI bridge is integrated on-chip, the XPort1003 draws less power and costs less than conventional designs based on other processors that require a PCI bridge.
