COM ports and UARTS

Matrox Solios eA/XA and eCL/XCL offers RS-232 compatible serial interfaces (each controlled by a UART). Each interface is mapped as a COM port so that it can be accessed through the Microsoft Windows API.

Use the Microsoft Windows library to access and control the serial ports. To view them in a Microsoft Windows operating system, refer to Microsoft Window's device manager, under Ports (COM & LPT). Alternatively, MIL can control and access the serial ports using MsysControl() with M_UART....

With Matrox Solios eCL/XCL, the Camera Link manufacturer's camera configuration application can access and control the serial ports.

Note that, if you have enabled the CLProtocol module for one of your cameras, the COM port for the associated acquisition path will not be available.
