3588 overview

  • 8x 2-wire RS-485 serial ports
  • 16C954 buffered UARTs with 128-byte FIFOs
  • Data rates to 921.6Kbps
  • Two 40-pin right-angle header connectors
  • Extended temperature range optional (-40°C to +85°C)
  • (MOQ 25 pieces)
The 3588 PC/104 serial interface provides eight two-wire RS-485 serial ports. The board includes UARTs with 128-byte FIFOs for fast, error free communication up to 921.6K bps.

To simplify RS-485 communication, the board used with our software driver automatically handles the RS-485 driver enable, allowing the RS-­485 ports to be viewed by the operating system as standard COM ports. Additionally, the board supports custom baud rates and 9-bit protocols.

Sealevel's SeaCOM software drivers and utilities make installation and operation easy.
