uLan Driver provides 9-bit character message-
oriented communication protocol that is
transferred over an RS-485 link. The physical layer
consists of one twisted pair of leads, and RS-485
transceivers. Supported hardware includes OX16C954 PCI based add-on cards, USB-to-uLan converters, the i82510 RS-485 card, or simple active converter dongle for standard PC RS-232 ports. The whole set of libraries and support tools is available for building embedded devices. They range from low level firmware boot-loaders and debugging tools up to object oriented properties browsing and manipulation and process data communication channels mapping.
