VG-CD1400, Serial Communication Controller
The Amphus VG-CD1400 Serial Communication Controller is pin compatible and functionally equivalent to the Intel discontinued SCD1400 Serial Communication Controller. With an easy interface to general purpose microprocessors and high port density, the Amphus VG-CD1400 serial controller provides a high-throughput multi-channel serial communications solution for remote access servers, POS terminals, and terminal servers. Applications include data communications between terminals and central hubs, wide- area communications, management ports, and console ports. By moving data efficiently from serial channels to the host system, the Amphus VG-CD1400 helps minimize system overhead, while supporting optimum levels of data throughput. Each serial channel supports a data rate of 230.4 Kbits/sec. Vectored interrupts improve efficiency by eliminating the requirement for status checks and enabling a direct jump into service routines. The Amphus VG-CD1400 provides a flexible choice of either user-programmable or automatic flow control modes and supports "send special character", line break, and transmit delay. In addition, the Amphus VG-CD1400 automatically supports special character processing for Unix-based line driver applications.
Lead-Free version of VG-CD1400 is available now. It is a Pin Compatible and Functional Equivalent to VG-CD1400. It has the same silicon die as in VG-CD1400. The only difference is the package material composition for the package used. Lead-content and other non-friendly environmental substances are completely removed from the package materials. Because of the material differences, solder reflow profile for VG-CD1400-LF is slightly different from VG-CD1400. The VG-CD1400-LF is fully compliant to RoHS environmental standards.
