BA 2TR/501: 8 x Serial Communications Board
BA 2TR/501: 8 x Serial Communications Board
BA 2TR/502: 4 x Gigabit Ethernet Board
BA 2TR/502: 4 x Gigabit Ethernet Board

BA 2TR/501 supports up to eight serial communications ports for applications that require multiple serial ports within a single slot. Up to five ports are available on the VPX connector for rear communication and three are available on the front panel in the air-cooled variants along with optional cables (with screw locking connectors). The serial ports can be configured to support RS232, RS422 or RS485 standard interfaces which means they are suitable for use with most equipment that has a serial interface. Despite being a legacy standard, RS232/422/485 is still extensively used in deeply embedded applications.

BA 2TR/502 supports a quad-port Gigabit Ethernet controller for applications that require additional network interfaces within a single VPX slot. Up to four Gigabit Ethernet ports are available on the VPX connector for rear communication, alternatively the four ports can be routed to the front panel via standard RJ45 connectors for use in air-cooled applications. The product is designed to suit the growing number command, control, communicate and compute applications in the military and aerospace markets that need additional network capacity.

Both BA 2TR/501 and BA 2TR/502 link to a host processor board via PCI Express and can be configured to work in a wide range of VPX backplane configurations.
