1 INTRODUCTION
The Quatech MPA-200/300 is a single channel, synchronous serial communication port for systems utilizing the architecture of the IBM AT personal or compatible computers. The MPA-200 is RS-422 compatible.
The MPA-300 has RS-485 data line drivers and receivers in place of the
MPA-200's RS-422 drivers and receivers. The MPA-300's RS-485 interface will
allow multiple systems to be connected in a multi-drop configuration. Hereafter,
the MPA-200 and MPA-300 will be collectively referred to as the MPA-200
except where noted.
The ports of the MPA-200 occupy an 8 byte block of I/O address space. The base
address of this block may be located anywhere within the available I/O address
space of the system.
The MPA-200 is available with a variety of serial communications controlers
(SCC). All of the available SCC's can support asynchronous formats, byteoriented protocols such as IBM Bisync, and bit-oriented protocols such as HDLC
and IBM SDLC. The SCC's also offer internal functions such as on-chip baud rate
generators, and digital phase-lock loops (DPLL).
The MPA-200 also supports Direct Memory Access (DMA) and interrupts. DMA
channels 1 - 3 can be used for high data transfer rates, while interrupt levels 2 - 7,
10 - 12, and 14 - 15 are available for several interrupt sources.
On the MPA-200, communications is controlled by the SCC labeled U17. There
are seven jumper blocks on the MPA-200 that allow the user to select such
options as DMA channels, interrupt levels and driver control. If the MPA-200 is
configured for data terminal equipment (DTE), external connections are made
through a male D-25 connector CN2. If the MPA-200 is configured for data
communications equipment (DCE), external connections are made through a a
female D-25 connector CN1. These configurations are determined when the board
is manufactured, prior to shipment.
On the MPA-200, the driver circuit consists of one RS-422 driver (U18), one
RS-422 receiver (U26), four RS-422/485 transceivers (U19, U20, U22, U23), two
RS-423 drivers (U24, U25). Each differential pair that is received by the
MPA-200 has a 100 ohm termination resistor.
On the MPA-300, the driver circuit consists of one RS-485 driver (U19), one
RS-485 receiver (U26), four RS-422/485 transceivers (U19, U20, U22, U23), two
RS-423 drivers (U24, U25). Each differential pair that is received by the
MPA-300 has a 150 ohm termination resistor.

Quatech Inc., MPA-200/300 Manual
3.1 Accessing the registers
The mode of communication desired is established and monitored through the bit
values of the internal read and write registers. The register set of the SCC includes
16 write registers and 9 read registers. These registers only occupy four address
locations, which start at the MPA-200's physical base address that is configured
via the on board switches. This and all other addresses are referenced from this
base address in the form Base + Offset. An example of this is Base + 1 for the
SCC Control Port, Channel A.
There are two register locations per SCC channel, a data port and a control port .
Accessing the internal SCC registers is a two step process that requires loading a
register pointer to perform the addressing to the correct data register. The first
step is to write to the control port the operation and address for the appropriate
channel. The second step is to either read data from or write data to the control
port. The only exception to this rule is when accessing the transmit and receive
data buffers. These registers can be accessed with the two step process described
or with a single read or write to the data port. The following examples illustrate
how to access the internal registers of the SCC. Also, Table 2 SCC read register
description describes the read registers and Table 3 SCC write register description describes the write registers for each channel.
The MPA-200 has been designed to assure that all back to back access timing
requirements of the SCC are met without the need for any software timing
control. The standard of adding jmp $+2 between IO port accesses is not required
when accessing the MPA-200.

External/Status interrupt information
The SCC can perform three basic forms of I/O operations: polling, interrupts, and
block transfer. Polling transfers data, without interrupts, by reading the status of
RR0 and then reading or writing data to the SCC buffers via CPU port accesses.
Interrupts on the SCC can be sourced from the receiver, the transmitter, or
External/Status conditions. At the event of an interrupt, Status can be determined,
then data can be written to or read from the SCC via CPU port accesses. For
block transfer mode, DMA transfers accomplish data transfers from the SCC to
memory or from memory to the SCC, interrupting the CPU only when the Block
is finished. Further information on these subjects are found in the chapters titled
INTERRUPTS, and DIRECT MEMORY ACCESS.
The SCC incorporates additional circuitry supporting serial communications. This
circuitry includes clocking options, baud rate generator (BRG), data encoding, and
internal loopback. The SCC may be programmed to select one of several sources
to provide the transmit and receive clocks. These clocks can be programmed in
WR11 to come from the RTXC pin, the TRXC pin, the output of the BRG, or the
transmit output of the DPLL. The MPA-200 uses the TRXC pin for its transmit
7
Quatech Inc., MPA-200/300 Manual
clock (TCLK) and the RTXC pin for its receive clock (RCLK). Programming of
the clocks should be done before enabling the receiver, transmitter, BRG, or
DPLL.

Baud Rate Generator Programming
The baud rate generator (hereafter referred to as the BRG) of the SCC consists of
a 16-bit down counter, two 8-bit time constant registers, and an output divide-bytwo. The time constant for the BRG is programmed into WR12 (least significant
byte) and WR13 (most significant byte). The equation relating the baud rate to the
time constant is given below while Table 4 shows the time constants associated
with a number of popular baud rates when using the standard MPA-200 9.8304
MHz clock.

SCC Data Encoding Methods
The SCC provides four different data encoding methods, selected by bits D6 and
D5 in WR10. These four include NRZ, NRZI, FM1 and FM0. The SCC also
features a digital phase-locked loop (DPLL) that can be programmed to operate in
NRZI or FM mode. Also, the SCC contains two features for diagnostic purposes,
controlled by bits in WR14. They are local loopback and auto echo.

4 JUMPER BLOCK CONFIGURATIONS
The MPA-200 utilizes seven user-selectable jumper blocks , that allow the user
more flexibility when configuring the board. The following section explains the
function of each of the jumper blocks on the MPA-200.
4.1
J4 - Interrupt Configuration
J4 is a three pin jumper which determines whether or not a board’s interrupt is
sharable. By selecting pins 1 & 2, the user has the ability to share an interrupt with
other Quatech expansion cards. The MPA-200 will drive the interrupt onto the bus
only when an interrupt occurs. Otherwise, the output is high impedance. If pins 2
& 3 of J4 are selected, then interrupts abide by the IBM specification and cannot
be shared. Table 5 summarizes the jumper block selections for J4. To maintain
100% ISA bus compatibility J7 should be set in No Interrupt Sharing mode.

J5 & J6 - Interrupt Level Selection
Jumper blocks J5 and J6 select the interrupt level that the MPA-200 utilizes. Interrupt levels IRQ2 - IRQ7 reside on J5, while interrupt levels IRQ10 - IRQ12 and
IRQ14 - IRQ15 reside on J6. Table 6, and Table 7 summarize the jumper block
selections for J5 and J6. The IRQ levels are also marked on the MPA-200 silkscreen for easy identification.

NOTE:
Since it is illegal to perform transmit DMA and receive DMA on the
same DMA channel, jumper blocks J10 and J11 should never have the
same pins connected. This condition could result in damage to the
system.
4.5
J7 - Line Driver Control Selection
J7 controls the source for enabling and disabling the driver circuitry on the
MPA-200. By selecting pins 1 & 2, the transmitters on the MPA-200 will always
be enabled. If the user wants the ability to enable and disable the transmitters, pins
2 & 3 should be selected. By doing this, the transmitters are controlled by bit D0
of the communications register. Similarly, by selecting pins 4 & 5, the receivers
on the MPA-200 will always be enabled. If pins 5 & 6 are selected, the receivers
are controlled by bit D1 of the communications register. Table 10 summarizes the
jumper block selections for J7.

5 ADDRESSING
The MPA-200 occupies a continuous 8 byte block of I/O addresses. For example,
if the base address is set to 300H, then the MPA-200 will occupy address
locations 300H-307H. The base address of the MPA-200 may be set to any of the
first 64 Kbytes (0 - FFFFH) of available I/O address space through the settings of
dip switches SW1 and SW2. SW1 allows the user to select the higher address
signals A15 - A8. SW2 allows the user to select the lower address signals A7 A3. The sixth position of SW2 is not used and can be ignored. Figure 2 shows
some examples of different base addresses.

6 INTERRUPTS
The MPA-200 supports eleven interrupt levels: IRQ2 -7, IRQ10 - 12, and IRQ14
- 15. The interrupt level is selected through jumper blocks J5 and J6 ( see
JUMPER BLOCK CONFIGURATIONS on page 11). The interrupt source is
selected by bits D4 and D5 of the configuration register. The MPA-200 has three
interrupt sources: interrupt on terminal count, interrupt on test mode, and interrupt
from the SCC. Interrupts from the SCC can occur on a number of conditions,
depending on which is programmed. These include interrupt on first character
received, interrupt on all characters received, interrupt on special condition
received, interrupt on character transmitted, and interrupt on External/Status
(see manufacturers data sheets for more details). Also, jumper block J4 can be
selected to provide for interrupt sharing on the MPA-200.
When using interrupts with the MPA-200, it is required that the applications
program have an interrupt service routine (ISR). There are several things that an
ISR must do to allow proper system operation:
1. Do a software interrupt acknowledge to the SCC. This is accomplished by reading the interrupt vector register, status register 2, in
channel B of the SCC. The value supplied by this read can also be
used to vector to the appropriate part of the ISR.
2. Service the interrupt by reading the receiver buffer, writing to the
transmit buffer, etc.
3. Write a Reset Highest Interrupt Under Service (IUS) to the SCC. This
is done by writing a 0x38 to the SCC command register.
4. Check for any additional interrupts pending in the SCC and service
them.
5. For applications running under DOS, a nonspecific End of Interrupt
must be submitted to the interrupt controller. For Interrupts 2-7 this is
done by writing a 0x20 to port 0x20. For Interrupts 10-12,14 and 15
this is done by writing a 0x20 to 0x60, then a 0x20 to 0x20 (Due to the
interrupt controllers being cascaded). Note that this should only be
done if it is a requirement of the operating system being used.
For further information on these subjects or any others involving the SCC contact
the manufacturer of the SCC being used for a complete technical manual.

7 DIRECT MEMORY ACCESS
Direct Memory Access (DMA) is a way of directly transferring data to and from
memory, resulting in high data transfer rates with very low CPU overhead. The
MPA-200 allows the user to perform DMA transfers when data is received
(DMARRQ) or when data is transmitted (DMATRQ). Three different DMA
channels are available(DMA1 - DMA3). Which channels are selected is determined by setting jumper blocks J10 and J11 (See Table 8, and Table 9). The
sources of MPA-200’s requests originate from the SCC and can be programmed
for a variety of DMA modes. These modes include DMA request on transmit,
DMA request on receive, and DMA request on both transmit and receive.
For DMA request on transmit, the DMA controller should be programmed first
for an 8 bit read transfer on the desired channel, but not yet enabled. Then the
SCC should be programmed for DMA request on transmit on the desired DMA
source. The sources DMA request on transmit are either the W/REQA pin (pin 10)
of channel A or the DTR/REQA pin (pin 16) of channel A. The source is then
determined by bit D0 of the configuration register.
Note:
The DTR/REQA pin should only be used for DMA transfers if the user
does not require a valid DTR signal at the connector. This is due to the fact
that when DTR/REQA is used for DMA transfer it is not a valid handshake
signal.
After programming the SCC for DMA, one should enable the DMA on the
MPA-200 by setting bit D2 of the configuration register. Next, the DMA on the
SCC should be enabled, and finally, the DMA channel should be unmasked. The
DMA controller will write the data in memory to the SCC. When the transmit
buffer of the SCC becomes empty, a DMA request will be generated and the data
will be transferred.
For DMA request on receive, the DMA controller should be programmed first for
an 8 bit write transfer on the desired channel, but not yet enabled. Next, the SCC
should be programmed for DMA request on receive on the desired DMA source.
The two sources for DMA request on receive are either the W/REQA pin (pin 10)
of channel A or the W/REQB pin (pin 30) of channel B. The source is then determined by bit D1 on the configuration register. After programming the SCC for
DMA, one should enable the DMA on the MPA-200 by setting bit D3 of the
configuration register. Then, the DMA on the SCC should be enabled, and finally
the DMA controller should be enabled. When a character enters the receive buffer
Quatech Inc., MPA-200/300 Manual
18
of the SCC, a DMA request is generated. The DMA controller then writes the data
from the SCC into memory.
Programming for DMA request on both transmit and receive is simply a combination of the two. There are three possible configurations that can be used, depending on the sources selected. The first configuration available uses the W/REQA
pin of channel A for DMA request on receive, and the DTR/REQA pin of channel
A for DMA request on transmit. This is done by setting bit D0 and clearing bit
D1 of the configuration register. The second configuration uses the DTR/REQA
pin for DMA request on transmit, and the W/REQB pin for DMA request on
receive. This is done by setting both D0 and D1 of the configuration register.
These two configurations give users an optional way of performing DMA requests
on both transmit and receive. Otherwise, the third configuration should be used.
This configuration uses the W/REQA pin of channel A for DMA request on transmit, and the W/REQB pin of channel B for DMA request on receive. This is done
by clearing bit D0 and setting bit D1 of the configuration register. Figure 3 shows
a block diagram of the DMA circuitry on the MPA-200.
When using the channel A DTR/REQ pin for transmit DMA the SCC must be
programmed so that the request release timing of this pin is identical to the
WAIT/REQ timing. This is done by setting bit D4 of write register 7 prime.
NOTE:
Even though the W/REQA pin can be used for both DMA request on
transmit and receive, obviously it cannot be used for both simultaneously.
Therefore, bits D0 and D1 of the configuration register should never be
cleared at the same time while bits D2 and D3 are both set. This situation
may result in damage to the system.

Using Terminal Count to Generate an Interrupt
The MPA-200 allows the option of generating an interrupt whenever the Terminal
Count (TC) signal is asserted. Terminal Count is an indicator generated by the
system’s DMA controller, which signals that the number of transfers programed
into the DMA controller’s transfer register have occurred. This board feature only
works when theinterrupt sharing feature is selected on jumper J4.

9 COMMUNICATIONS REGISTER
The MPA-200 is equipped with an onboard communications register which gives
the user options pertaining to the clocks and testing. The user can specify the
source and type of clock to be transmitted or received. Test mode bits pertain only
to the DTE versions and can be ignored if using a MPA-200 configured DCE.
The address of this register is Base+4. Table 14 and the descriptions that follow
detail the communications register.
NOTE:
The Local Loopback Test and the Remote Loopback Test cannot be
performed simultaneously. Thus, bits D5 and D4 of the communications
register should not be simultaneously set (logic 1) .

10 DTE / DCE Configuration
The MPA-200 can be purchased in either Data Terminal Equipment (DTE) or
Data Communications Equipment (DCE) configuration. The two configurations
share some important features, but have significant differences which need to be
mentioned.
Both the DTE and DCE configurations allow the user to enable and disable the
driver circuitry on the MPA-200 through the settings of jumper block J7. See the
chapter JUMPER BLOCK CONFIGURATIONS on page 11 for further information on the configuration of this jumper block. They both also have the ability to
receive data and receive clock (RCLK) on channel B of the SCC. This allows the
user to transmit and receive on two different channels.
The differences between the MPA-200’s DTE configuration and its DCE configuration include signal definitions, control signals, clocking options and testing. The
following sections describe each configuration individually and in detail.
25
Quatech Inc., MPA-200/300 Manual
10.1 DTE Configuration
The control signals that the DTE can generate are the Request To Send (RTS) and
Data Terminal Ready (DTR). It can receive the signals Carrier Detect (CD), Clear
to Send (CTS), and Data Set Ready (DSR). All of the control signals are
controlled through channel A of the SCC, with the exception of the DSR signal,
which is received on channel B.
The DTE’s transmit clock (TCLK from the SCC TRXCA pin) can be transmitted
on TTCLK or received on RTCLK depending on TCKEN (D2 of the communications register). The receive clock (RCLK from the SCC RTxC pins) can be
received on RRCLK or can be generated on the TRxCB pin of the SCC, depending on RCKEN ( D3 of the communications register). The DTE can not transmit
its RCLK. Figure 4 illustrates the clock circuitry of the MPA-200 for it's DTE
configuration.

The testing signals that the DTE can generate are the Local Loopback Test (LL)
and the Remote Loopback Test (RL). These signals are can be controlled through
the onboard communications register. The DTE can generate an interrupt when a
Test Mode (TM) condition is received. Table 15 summarizes the signals on the
DTE.
Quatech Inc., MPA-200/300 Manual
26
10.2 DCE Configuration
On the MPA-200, the difference between the DTE and DCE signals is that, with
the exception of a few control signals, the pins used for signal transmission on the
DTE are used for signal reception on the DCE and vice versa. For example, pin 2
of the DCE connector is received data, yet the corresponding DTE signal is the
transmitted data. This allows the user to connect a DTE device to a DCE device
and perform communication without the use of any customized cable or adapter.
The control signals that the DCE can generate are the Clear to Send (CTS),
Carrier Detect (CD), and Data Set Ready (DSR). It can receive the signals Data
Terminal Ready (DTR) and Ready to Send (RTS). All of the control signals are
controlled through channel A of the SCC, with the exception of the CD signal,
which is generated on channel B.
Depending on the value of TCKEN (D2 of the communications register) the
DCE’s transmit clock (TCLK from the SCC ‘s TRXCA pin) can either be transmitted on TTCLK, or not used at all because the DCE can not receive a TCLK.
Depending on the value of RCKEN (D3 of the communications register), the
DCE’s receive clock (RCLK from the SCC’s RTXC pins) can either be received
on RRCLK or generated on TRXCB of the SCC. In this second case, the signal
from TRXCB is also transmitted on RTCLK. Figure 5 illustrates the clock
circuitry of the MPA-200 for its DCE configuration.

11 EXTERNAL CONNECTIONS
When configured as a DTE, the MPA-200 uses a D-25 short body male connector
(labeled CN2). When configured as a DCE, the MPA-200 uses a D-25 long body
female connector (labeled CN1). Table 15 and Table 16 describe the pin out
definitions for both connectors and Figure 6 and Figure 7 illustrate the pin-outs
for each of the connectors..
