- [RC232] “we are building an application with one master boat, which communicates with 150 slaves boats (obviously in open sea). Each slave boat will have a bit rate of 1Kbps to the master boat, the signal range must be till 2km. We are considering using RC17xxHP-RC232 modules to communicate with master boat and slaves. Our questions are: It will be the RC1780HP-RC232 module suitable for this application, or you propose some other module? It’s possible with this device to create a multipoint network (one master, many slaves)? Does your modules have frequency hopping function? “
- [RC232] When the module is receiving data from the air, is it possible to send data from the host on the UART RXD ?
- [RC232] When the MAC layer has a packet to send, it will use a carrier-sense-multiple-access (CSMA) protocol to determine if another module is already transmitting. If another module is transmitting, the module will receive that data before attempting to transmit its data again. If, during this process, the UART receive buffer gets full, the CTS line will go high to prevent the host UART from over-running the receive buffer. The CSMA mechanism introduces a variable delay to the transmission channel. This delay is the sum of a random period and a weighted period that is dependent on the number of times that the module has tried and failed to acquire the channel. For applications that guarantee that only one module will be transmitting at any given time, the CSMA mechanism can be turned off to avoid this delay.
