FrSky S.Port UART Converter for Telemetry

by TiefPflug » Tue Apr 28, 2015 6:21 pm

Hello there,

ive read aboute the FrSky Smart- Port to UART Converter:
Short version: we could use our Taranis/XJT-Module with X-type reciever to transmit data, bidirectional.
Put Smart-Port Converter between reciever and FC telemetry port (UART).
On Taranismitter side use a Serial(?) to USB (FTDI) and connect phone/tablet.

No additional telemetry transmitters needed.

Or did i miss anything ?


UART Definition & Data-Transmission:

Baud Rate: 300 bps (default), 8N1, no parity.
The Baud Rate is possible to reconfiguration within 300bps, 600bps, 1200bps, 2400bps, 4800bps, 9600bps.
Capacity: Normal capacity (Mode 1) and High capacity (Mode 2)

To Enable Data-transmission at S.PORT BUS, the Host (Type A) and Remote (Type B) devices are requiring use as pair and set in same Capacity Mode.

Here we take the example by XJT module and X8R receiver to introduce how to Data-transmission at S.Port BUS:
- We definition the Host (Type A) is connect with XJT by S.Port, Remote (Type B) is connect with S.Port of X8R receiver.
(The Mode A and Mode B position is exchangeable)

- When input data from Type B UART port will output the same data at Type A UART port. Vice versa.
