The SPL/DS Data Selector is a receive only device that decodes a simple network protocol (defined later in this document) and delivers short ASCII text strings to the terminal ports on the SPL/DS.With this dataselector, only one RS-232 port is used to connect two RS-232 devices (i.e., printer, plotter, etc.) with a mini-or microcomputer. The operation is very simple. Power on will resetFFI (QFFT ~ Low), which enables gates N1, N5, and N7. Now communication between computer and device B is possible. Detection of the switch command, i.e., Control B character ~ CHR$(2), selectable with wirewrap pins, on the parallel outputs of the UART (IM 6402 or equivalent) will set: QFFT ~ High.Gates N2, N5, and N7 are open, so device A is connected with the computer until Control B character is detected again. Transistor Q1 converts RS-232 levels toTTL levels while two LEDs indicate whether device A orB is linked. The baud-rate generator provides the 16 x clock needed for the UART. Any baud rate ranging from 50 to 19200 can be selected. Manual control of the selector is available with toggleswitch Sl.
A crosspoint analog data selector for coupling data received on a predetened number of input channel lines onto a predetermined lesser number of output channel lines. The crosspoint analog data selector includes a selector section and a control section.
