The IPC-BIT900 boards together with the WDM driver provide top performance BITBUS operation: Unlimited message lengths, speeds from 62.5 kbit/s over 375 kbit/s to 1.5Mbit/s, handling of outstanding messages, FIFOs to the BITBUS and to the PCinterface, firmware in Flash Eprom for easy updates, master and slave operation.
The main difference - and advantage - of BITBUS over competing fieldbusses is the use of the synchronous SDLC in contrast to the usual asynchronous protocol. Assembly and monitoring of the complete message frame including flags and CRC is done in the serial controller's hardware, which frees the processor for higher layer tasks. Using only one RS485 wire pair requires data and synchronous clock to be transmitted as one mixed signal. This operation allows also inverting of the data pair without any problem. At the receiver end the clock has to be regenerated from the encoded signal, the PC-typical 16C550-type-controllers do not support synchronous transfers and no DPLL clock regeneration. ELZET80 uses the Zilog Z16C32 IUSC, a very high performance serial controller for both synchronous and asynchronous protocols. It not only supports SDLC and NRZI but has built-in 32 byte FIFOs for both directions and an intelligent DMA controller. To use an IPC-BIT900 board for asynchronous operation would, however, require custom software. Your inquiry is welcome.

The line side of the Z16C32 is coupled via 10MBit/s optocouplers to SN75LBC176, a low power consumption, high output capability successor of the standard 75176. A data and an RTS line are driven to allow external repeaters (that need to be switched in direction via the RTS signal). Alternatively the two transceivers can be used (jumper selectable) to operate full duplex lines (separate lines for receive and transmit) which are being used in point to point connections or for example in the DIN-MESSBUS fieldbus. A DC/DC-converter supplies isolated voltage for the drivers so the RS485 side is electrically decoupled from the PC side. Transient suppressor diodes are used on all lines to protect the drivers.

Digital data were then interpreted and calculated by microcontroller (ELZET TSM-CPU® model 32 H2EA, ELZET80 Mikrocomputer GmbH & Co., KG, Germany). The average maximum force was displayed on a four-digit, serial LED display model SC4Dlite A (Silicon Craft Sdn. Bhd., Malaysia). The installation of this equipment is shown in Figure 3.
The RS485 line gets tied to a defined level by resistors against the isolated voltage if the line is idle. Bus termination can be activated by the DIP-switches, if the board is at the physical end of the bus. For users requiring external clocking, special versions are available for the bus systems ISA and PCI.
A TMP95C061 has been selected as the network processor because of its compatibility to existing BITBUS products running with the mCAT real time kernel using TLCS900-family processors. It is a 16-bit microprocessor running at 24.576 MHz. To save on space the RAM is only accessible 8 bit wide, der EPROM mit dem Programmcode ist in voller Breite (16 Bit) ansprechbar. The module is provided with 128K RAM and 1M Byte Flash, optional kann die Baugruppe auch mit 512K RAM geliefert werden. The BITBUS driver is integrated into the mCAT firmware in manner that allows downloading user application tasks into RAM or Flash- EPROM. These tasks are reachable from the BITBUS and their function code can be identified using RAC/GBS standard procedures, see BITBUS basics. This allows writing master applications in firmware that poll for instance all nodes for data preprocessing or alarm signalling without requiring the PC application to act.
Communication between PC and the master board is sped up by separate FIFOs for reception and transmission that both take at least one complete BITBUS message of 250 bytes. Real-time wise both sides are thus fully decoupled. The FIFOs are attached to the network processors DMA. PC interrupts can be signalled on lines between 3 and 15. The selection gets done by software, on the PCI board the Windows®-Plug&Play mechanism does the interrupt assignment. A large serial EEPROM saves configuration data like network speed (62.5, 375, 750, or 1500kBit), the node address, and a user size limit on message length. In interaction with mCAT based ELZET80 slave nodes hence a complete network may be switched to for example another speed by executing the set speed command from BAPIMON.

For safety-critical applications the built-in relay (PC/104 has just the driver for an external relay) with changeover contacts can be used to signal an emergency state: Usually one would create a local task to sum up all possible error conditions and keep the relay active until an error occurs. The relay is gated with RESET in a way that pressing the PC reset key, issuing a RESET command to the board or a local watchdog event all will deactivate the relay in addition to the supervisor task.
Front panel indicators show transmitter activity (yellow) and a user programmable LED (green, blinking at 1Hz with standard software).
The two internal serial ports of the TMP95C061 are taken out to 10pin header connectors for which mating RS232 level shifter modules are available. These 'PER-IF232'-modules are small boards mounted to a 9pin Sub-D connector for front panel attachment. The use of these modules opens the path to local peripherals for master tasks or to the mCAT monitor for diagnostics.
