MultiCom RF

Multi-Purpose Vehicle Interface Adapter for Wireless Applications

EnGenius' MultiCom RF 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.) MultiCom RF interfaces to a host via Radio Frequency. MultiCom RF'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 RF 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 RF is packaged in a 8" x 7" x 2.75" sealed metal enclosure. Typically, the MultiCom RF is configured as a stand-alone module executing a custom application and using one PIM slot for RF communications. This configuration allows access to all of the adapter's resources and, when required, to the outside world via RF.
