TPS3 BASIC/C-programmable Multi-port, Multi-protocol Controller US$232.00

TPS3 BASIC/C-programmable Multi-port, Multi-protocol Controller

Programmable Multi-port, Multi-protocol Controller

This is a programmable 4-port serial-over-IP device (a.k.a. device server) with RS232/422/485 ports, designed and built using Tibbo Project System components.

The system will come completely assembled in an enclosure with DIN rail mounting hardware, looking similar to this (but with four DB9M interfaces along the bottom, orange part):

The labeled areas on the box are paper with plastic protectors over them. You can remove the protectors, write connection details on the paper labels, then replace the protectors.

In this system configuration, you will have no control of the shutdown line, so the power supply always will be enabled.

Bill of Materials

This device is assembled using the following components: It is possible (and cheaper) to assemble your own version if you purchase the components separately or you could customize your version by replacing some/all of the DB9M connector #19 Tibbits with screw-terminal interface #20 Tibbits, for example.

Socket S27 does not provide control line A, so having Tibbit #09 there means you will have no control of the shutdown line, thus the power supply always will be enabled.

Programmable Firmware Features
(Tibbo Operating System)

You can code your applications in Tibbo BASIC and/or Tibbo C within the comprehensive TIDE development environment with seamless cross-debugging via Ethernet. An integrated web server (HTTP) creates a web front-end for your device.

High-level objects simplify your code and allow you to create a data-transport application with just a few lines of code:

Platform Objects

  • lcd controls the optional TFT LCD
  • kp handles the optional 4-button keypad
  • sock socket comms (up to 16 UDP, TCP, and HTTP sessions)
  • net controls the Ethernet port
  • wln handles the WiFi interface (when using the optional GA1000 module)
  • ser in charge of serial channels
  • ssi up to 4 serial synchronous interface channels (for SPI, I2C, etc.)
  • io handles I/O lines, ports, and interrupts
  • rtc keeps track of date and time
  • fd manages Flash memory file system and direct sector access
  • stor provides access to the EEPROM
  • romfile facilitates access to resource files (fixed data)
  • pppoe connects to the internet over an ADSL modem
  • ppp connects to the internet over a serial modem (e.g. GPRS)
  • pat "plays" patterns on green and red status LED pairs
  • beep generates buzzer patterns
  • button monitors the setup button
  • sys in charge of general device functionality

Function Groups

  • String functions (27 in total)
  • Date/time conversion functions (8)
  • Encryption/hash calculation functions (AES128, RC4, MD5, SHA-1)

Variable Types

  • Byte, char, integer (word), short, dword, long, real, string, plus user-defined arrays and structures.

WiFi Option

To add WiFi to the system, select the four optional products shown below. One is the WiFi module itself; one is the external antenna interface that connects to it; one is a WiFi antenna; the fourth is a Tibbit Remover that will help you to replace the blank Tibbit in socket S29 with the Tibbit #37 RF connector. You will need a screwdriver to remove the top of the box and the vibration protection plate in order to install the WiFi components (then you can put everything back together).
