Chapter 1
Welcome to the CA Series of PC/104 communication modules, a multiport serial module for
industrial applications. It is designed for PC/104 CPU boards that accept the PC/104 expansion
interface. Optional DB9 and DB25 cables are available to connect different devices. The device
drivers make full use of the 64-byte Tx/Rx FIFO and on-chip flow control, which allows up to
921.6 Kbps data transmission.
The CA Series includes the following models:

Introduction
Overview
The CA Series PC/104 module is designed to be used with PC/104 CPU modules or CPU cards
with the PC/104 expansion interface. Models are available for RS-232, RS-422, and RS-485, with
2, 4, or 8 ports. The serial ports are accessed through a 20 or 40-pin box header connector on the
module. DIP switches allow you to configure the I/O base address and INT vector of each port.
The industry-standard MOXA UART (16C550 compatible) is fully programmable. Built-in 15 KV
ESD protection protects devices connected to the serial network.
Package Checklist
MOXA performs a careful mechanical and electrical inspection of each module prior to shipping.
Your module should arrive in perfect electrical order, free of any marks or scratches. Please handle
the module by the edges only, since your body’s static charge can damage the integrated circuits.
When the module is not in use, please keep it in the anti-static package provided. You may also
use this package to return the module if it requires repair.
The CA Series module is shipped with the following items:

Hardware Installation
Installing the CA Series module is easy. Before inserting the module into the PC/104 slot, you
must first configure the I/O base address, interrupt vector, IRQ, and serial interface (for select
models).
ATTENTION
Safety First!
To prevent damage to your system or board, make sure your embedded PC’s power is turned off
before installing your CA Series module.
Step 1: Shut off power to your embedded PC and to any peripheral devices. After shutting off
power, remove the cover of your embedded PC.
Step 2: Use the DIP switches on the module to select I/O base address, interrupt vector, IRQ, and
serial interface (for select models). Details for each model are provided later in this
chapter.
Step 3: Insert the module firmly into the embedded PC’s PC/104 slot.
Step 4: Screw the control board in place.
Step 5: Connect the cables.
Step 6: Power on the embedded PC.

Termination Resistor
Onboard termination resistors can be activated individually for each serial port using jumpers. For
CA-114 and CA-134I, use JP1 through JP4; for CA-132 and CA-132I, use JP1 and JP2. JP1
corresponds to serial port 1. Short the jumper pins to activate the termination resistor; leave the
jumper pins open to bypass the termination resistor.

IRQ
Before selecting an IRQ, please enter the PC’s BIOS and reserve a dedicated IRQ for the module.
On the module, the IRQ is set by a jumper. Before inserting the module into the PC/104 slot, use
the jumper to select an IRQ (3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, or 15).

with another port. Generally, you should consider the convenience of
programming when specifying the port number.
TxD buffer size: This is the transmission (output) buffer allocated in the system for each port.
RxD buffer size: This is the receiving (input) buffer allocated in the system for each port.

Drivers\ MOXA Smartio/Industio-PC/104. Right-click on the driver Prefix COM or Prefix
MXU you would like to include and choose Add to OS Design.
Note: You can only select either Prefix COM or Prefix MXU, but not both.
Prefix COM supports up to 10 ports, from COM0 to COM9. Prefix MXU supports more than 10
ports, so it is better for you to select Prefix MXU if you are not sure how many ports the device
has. Otherwise, you will only be allowed to use one multiport serial board on the target host.
6. After adding Moxa Tech drivers into your OS Design, a new project is automatically added to
your workspace. The project name is mxpcdrvce5.reg. The project can be accessed from View
Æ File View. The mxpcdrvce5.reg project contains a number of files used to configure the
drivers included in your OS Design. For ISA boards, remember to set the IRQ and I/O address
in mxpcdrvce5.reg. For example, if your IRQ is 10, IOBASE is 0180, Interrupt and Vector is
01c0, then you should configure “1A” for SysIntr, “0180” and “01c0” for IOBASE, “A” for
IRQ and “1” for FIFO. When applying the formula “IRQ+10” remember that IRQ is in base
10 and 10 is in Hex format. If we first convert the IRQ value to Hex format, then SysIntr will
equal 1A. Otherwise, set FIFO to 1 to enable the FIFO.
Note: To use the “Terminal Emulator” tool, modify mxpcdrvce5.reg and keyboard as shown
below (this is just for “one” “COM” port). Take note of the number of ports, COM, and MXU,
and then enter the correct information.

Serial Programming Tools
Serial Programming Library
The serial programming library assists you in developing serial communications programs for any
COM port that complies with the Microsoft Win32 API. It facilitates the implementation of
multi-process and multi-thread serial communication programs and can remarkably reduce
development time.
The library provides a complete set of functions as well as various sample programs for Visual
C++, Visual Basic, and Delphi. To view detailed descriptions of the available functions and
sample programs, go to Start Æ Program Æ PComm Lite and select PComm Lib Help,
PComm Porting Notes, or PComm Programming Guide. You may also refer to the sample
programs in the PComm directory.
PComm Utilities
This sections provides brief descriptions of the PComm utilities. For more information about these
utilities, please refer to the help files or to the API-232.txt file for DOS.
Installation
To install PComm, run Setup.exe from the installation diskette. Please note that the PComm
diagnostic and monitor utilities are for Moxa boards only. These two utilities will not work with
other serial boards.
PComm Diagnostic
PComm Diagnostic is designed for Moxa boards only. It provides internal and external testing of
IRQ, TxD/RxD, UART, CTS/RTS, DTR/DSR, DTR/DCD, and other items. You can use PComm
Diagnostic to check the operation of both software and hardware.
To run the Diagnostic program, go to Start Æ Program Æ PComm Lite Æ Diagnostic.

PComm Monitor
PComm Monitor is designed for Moxa board in Windows NT only. It allows you to monitor data
transmission of selected Moxa COM ports. It monitors data transmission, throughput, and line
status at regular intervals. Click on a specific port to view that port’s communication parameters
and status.
To run PComm Monitor, go to Start Æ Program Æ PComm Lite Æ Monitor.
PComm Terminal Emulator
PComm Terminal Emulator can be used to connect to a serial port to verify that data transmission
is functioning correctly. It supports multiple windows and both VT100 and ANSI terminal types.
You can interactively transfer data, periodically send patterns, and transfer files using ASCII,
XMODEM, YMODEM, ZMODEM, and KERMIT protocols.
To run PComm Terminal Emulator, go to Start Æ Program Æ PComm Lite Æ Terminal
