MultiCom II

Multi-Purpose Vehicle Interface Adapter on an ISA Card

EnGenius' MultiCom II is a flexible solution that provides simultaneous access to multiple vehicle networks as well as digital and analog input/output. (Custom protocols can also be supported.) The MultiCom II is a half-size ISA card. MultiCom II's unique design consists of a set of Physical Interface Modules (PIMs) that plug into its base platform. Each PIM (standard or custom designed) contains the specific interface circuits that allow MultiCom II to connect to external devices. The PIMs and the base platform can all function simultaneously. This multi-purpose vehicle interface adapter provides a powerful, yet flexible, solution to meet a wide range of needs. MultiCom II can also be programmed with custom applications. This makes it possible for MultiCom II to operate in a stand-alone configuration (i.e., without a PC) with access to all of the adapter's resources.

Interface Capabilities

MultiCom II is capable of supporting ISO 9141, ISO 9141-2, ISO 14230, ISO 11519-4, ISO 15765, SAE J1850 PWM, SAE J1850 VPW, CAN, SAE J2284, Ford's DCL, RS485/RS422, Ford's UBP, SAE J1939, SAE J1708, and others (including custom protocols).
