Macrolink MVC Intelligent Asynchronous Communications Multiplexer

  • 8 or 16 Lines
  • RS-232/422/423/485 and MIL-STD-188C
  • Full Modem Control
  • 16 MIPS RISC


The Macrolink MVC 16-port Communications Multiplexer is the first VMEbus Async Commux designed for real performance. Unlike traditional controllers that rely heavily on the host for processing or 68XXX-based controllers that still can't meet high through-put requirements, the MVC has processing power to spare thanks to the AMD 29K. At the heart of the MVC is a 16 MIPS AMD 29K RISC processor combined with an efficient shared memory - 128KB to 1MB - and DMA architecture. The RISC handles all character processing and buffering so driver calls and CPU intervention are minimized, and data overruns are eliminated. All VME data transfers and bus handshakes are controlled by a VIC068 VLSI ASIC. Our design allows all 16 ports to operate at 38.4 KBaud, an overall throughput well in excess of 61,000 characters per second. The MVC is ideal for applications with large amounts of high-speed data traffic including graphics, supervisory/robotics and PC-to-host file transfers as well as interactive terminal communications.

InstraView™ Equipment Inspection

Buying used equipment doesn't always have to be a shot in the dark. We know there are plenty of differences when it comes to used equipment and quite often, choosing between different pieces is difficult, especially when the equipment is not sitting right in front of you.

Well, what if you were able to see a piece of equipment before you purchased it? Not just a picture from the manufacturer's website, but the actual piece of equipment you would receive.
With InstraView™, we move you one step closer to inspecting the equipment you're interested in without having to wait for the equipment to show up at your door.

InstraView™ works in your web browser and allows you to view the actual piece of equipment you're interested in before purchasing. You can zoom in close to see the labels with the serial number or zoom out to see the overall condition of the equipment.

It's like having the store come to you!
