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.
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).
