RS-232/RS-422 Adapter with Video Sync Interrupt
Providing the designer with a low cost solution to change RS-232C
level transmit and receive signals into RS-422 differential level noise
immune signals and a video sync interrupt for multimedia applications.
This adapter replaces our ANC-6022.
Noise Immune Interface
- RoHS Compliant - Lead Free parts and manufacturing
- Transmit data at distances up to 4,000 feet (1,219 m)
- Master/Slave Jumper selectable and Full Duplex operation
- Pin compatible to DB-9 PC serial comport
- RS485/422 side mate directly to many multimedia units (Sony, Panasonic, Grass Valley, etc.)
- Baud rates to 1 MBaud
- NTSC or PAL video input for interrupt generation on vertical sync
- Frame accurate streaming video encoding (Windows Media Player)
- Latest Surface Mount Technology (SMT) for low power and small size
- 120 ohm terminating resistor jumper for input RS422
- Power supply and 6' DB-9 MF cable included
The adapter converts the RS-232C level signals transmit and receive
on a PC into bipolar RS-422 type signals. These converters find wide
use in high-speed long distance serial communications, or to interface
a PC with equipment that uses an RS-422 type input/output. Extended
cable runs, or terminated connections, require more current than the serial
port power can provide so the RS-422 connector or on-board barrel connector
can accept +4v to +12v DC at 100 milliamps to provide the added power to
operate the adapter.
Interrupt for Vertical Video Sync
Video multimedia applications sometimes require synchronizing
the process with the vertical sync. Like converting video to
streaming video, and in MIDI applications for sound synchronization.
The ANC-6023 provides a BNC connector which allows the designer to input
NTSC, or PAL, RS170 level composite or striped video. The on-board
sync separator produces an interrupt upon detection of a vertical sync
pulse which is readable on the serial port's Data Carrier Detect (DCD,
refered to as RLSD on some systems) or Ring Indicator (RI) line.
The designer can further input the serial port's status register to determine
if the interrupt was generated by field 1 or field 2. This
feature is unique to the Antona ANC-6023 adapter.
Because the adapter just converts RS-232C to and from RS-422
level signals, no specific software modifications are required to operate
the converter with off-the-shelf applications that use the serial communications
Windows Media Player - Check the latest version for support of the interrupt feature.
See our ANC-6090 adapter for the
same RS-232C to RS422 or RS-485 conversion without the video interrupt.
