E-Blocks RS232 Board, DTE and DCE Connectors US$79.90

E-Blocks RS232 Board, DTE and DCE Connectors

This is a downstream E-blocks peripheral module, designed to be controlled by one of the upstream E-blocks processing boards which are available in a variety of MCU/CPLD architectures.

RS232 interface board for E-blocks systems with connectors configured as DTE and DCE

This E-block allows you to connect devices, such as a PC, that require a Data Terminal Equipment (DTE) 9-pin Sub-D male connector, as well as Data Communcitations Equipment (DCE) devices that require a 9-pin SUB-D female connector, such as modems to a microcontroller with built-in UART. For this purpose this board features both a female and male 9-pin Sub-D connector one configured in DTE mode and the other one configured in DCE mode.

Jumpers and a solderable patch field allow you to map the RS232 signals to any pin of the E-block SUB-D connector for ultimate flexibility.

E-Blocks RS232 Board Features

Refer to image above

  • 1 -- 9-pin Sub-D downstream connector, used to connect this board to an E-blocks processing module
  • 2 -- Male 9-pin Sub-D RS232 connector for connection to DCE devices, such as a modem.
  • 3 -- Female 9-pin Sub-D RS232 connector for connection to DTE devices, such as a PC.
  • 4 -- RX and TX mode selection jumper pins
  • 5 -- CTS and RTS mode selection jumper pins
  • 6 -- Solder Patch system, used to adapt this board for use with non-PIC based processing modules
  • 7 -- MAX232 RS232 transceiver
  • 8 -- +5V power supply screw terminals

Macros for the Flowcode flowchart programming software allow for easy use of the RS232 function with that software package.

E-Blocks Overview

E-Blocks are small circuit boards each of which contains a block of electronics that you would typically find in an electronic system. Each E-Block performs a separate function as either an input sub-system, an output sub-system, an input/output sub-system or a processing sub-system.

E-Blocks can be put together to form a variety of systems that can be used for teaching and learning electronics, and for the rapid prototyping of complex electronic systems.

Each E-Block has one or more 9-way D-type connectors that provide up to eight input/output lines and a ground line. These D-type connectors allow connection between E-Blocks to be made in buses of multiples of 8 lines, just like a real electronic system. Power is routed separately to those E-Blocks that need it.

Processing E-Blocks based on PIC, dsPIC, ARM or AVR microcontrollers control the whole E-Blocks system. Processing E-Blocks provide up to five input/output ports with up to eight lines per port.

Please see the E-Blocks Category for a list of available components. For more details on E-Blocks, see the E-Blocks User Guide (in English, French, German and Spanish) or watch the Introduction to E-Blocks video.
