(RPUSBSH)
Hardware Documentation

Product Overview
The RocketPort USB Serial Hub (RPUSBSH)
connects to a Universal Serial Bus (USB) port on a
PC and provides up to four ports serial interface
connections. The RPUSBSH series includes two
models:
• RS-232
• RS-422
RocketPort USB Serial Hub series supports the
following features:
• Four independent high-speed serial interfaces
(RS-232 or RS-422, depending upon model)
• Speeds up to 115.2 Kbps
• 128-byte FIFO, which relieves the CPU of
excessive interrupts
• The serial ports appear as COM ports that
support all standard RS-232 or RS-422 devices
• “Plug-and-Play” and “Hot Plug” capability
• Bus powered
• Compatible with USB specification 1.0/1.1
• Windows 98 compatible
The RocketPort USB Serial Hub series uses an
internally generated 48 MHz controller specifically
designed for a USB port to operate four serial port
communications ports. With the USB standard of
high-speed data transfers, this device is ideal for
connections to high-speed modems or ISDN terminal
adapters. This device and its software enable the
USB interface to be transparent to the peripheral
and requires no firmware changes. This makes it
possible for serial peripherals to easily interface with
a USB port. This feature is ideal for legacy
applications.
Installing the Hardware
Hardware installation is discussed in the Software
Installation document.
Using the Optional Power Supply
Feature
Use the optional power supply feature if you are
connecting to a USB hub with cables longer than the
5 meters, which is specified in the USB specification.
If connecting to a USB hub (not a PC USB port), the
USB hub must be self-powered (external power
supply).
Wire the following pins
together for an RS-232/422
loopback plug.
• Pins 1 to 4 to 6
• Pins 2 to 3
• Pins 7 to 8 to 9
