SSC Communication Board V3.3 for SSC Evaluation Kits
Brief Description
Features
The SSC Modular Evaluation Kit provides hardware
and software for a very simple and intuitive method
of evaluating ZMDI’s sensor signal conditioner
(SSC) ICs. For the evaluation of different SSC ICs,
only the IC-specific SSC Evaluation Board and software are needed; the other parts of the evaluation
hardware (SSC Communication Board and SSC
Sensor Replacement Board) are typically the same.

The SSC Communication Board (SSC CB) can provide the power supply for the evaluation hardware
and handle the communication with a PC via a USB
interface. To prevent malfunctioning or damage, a
galvanic isolation to the PC’s USB port is established on board via optocouplers for the information
lines and an isolated DC/DC converter for the power
line. It is also possible to supply the Evaluation Kit by
an external 12 VDC power line via the KL1 screw
terminal on the SSC CB. It is also possible to supply
the SSC Evaluation Board or a user-specific
application circuit via the KL2 screw terminal with a
voltage of 2.7 to 5.5 VDC.

communication with the SSC IC via I C™ , SPI, or
TM
ZACwire or communication by LIN via a discrete
level shifter depending on settings in the IC’s
configuration registers. The microcontroller also
controls the power lines (12VDC, 5VDC, and VPP
EEPROM programming voltage) by driving several
electronic switches. The microcontroller displays the
status of communication via LEDs.
An on-board dual header strip enables access to all
signal and power lines. This allows a simple signal
check; e.g., by a digital oscilloscope, a multimeter, or
a connection with user-specific hardware.
Important: Always ensure that there is no power
when connecting SSC Evaluation Kit boards.

USB Driver Installation
Refer to the ZMDI document SSC_AN_CommunicationBoard_Driver_Installation_rev_X_xy.pdf for instructions for
installing the two USB drivers required by the ZSC31xxx/ZSSC3xxx SSC Evaluation Software. These drivers will
make the PC’s USB port appear as a virtual COM port (typically COM3 or COM4 on most computers). The SSC
Evaluation Kit software accesses the SSC Evaluation Board through the SSC CB as if it were a COM (RS232)
port. These drivers will not affect the operation of any other USB peripherals.
The two required driver files can be downloaded from the ZMDI website (http://www.zmdi.com) by navigating to
the “Evaluation Tools” page in the Sensor Signal Conditioner section: click on PRODUCTS > SENSOR SIGNAL
CONDITIONERS > EVALUATION TOOLS (http://www.zmdi.com/ssc-tools). Under the heading “General Documents and Supporting Materials,” click on the link titled “SSC CB USB Driver Rev. X” (where X is the current
revision) and follow the dialog instructions as needed to download the zip file for the drivers and extract the files.

Circuit Description
USB Power and the Communication Interface
SSC Evaluation Kits are interfaced to the user’s PC via a Universal Serial Bus (USB Rev. 2.0). The USB
communication is handled by an FT232R USB UART configured with a special ZMDI-specific product ID to
simplify the system installation process and provide “plug & play” functionality. The communication to the onboard microcontroller is handled by a common UART line via optocouplers to provide galvanic isolation.
The USB power line supplies this interface circuit via a galvanic isolated 5-to-12V DC/DC converter circuit.
Therefore no additional power supply is required. To fulfill the USB specification for devices with more than
100mA power consumption, the supply input of the subsequent circuit is switched by a MOS transistor, which is
controlled by the USB-UART-interface IC. As a result, the power supply of the connected microcontroller and SSC
Evaluation Board will be switched on after successful PC USB driver initialization. The maximum load current of
the DC-DC converter’s 12VDC output line is 78mA, which is sufficient for supplying the SSC Evaluation Board
hardware and some additional external electronic devices. Alternately, it is possible to supply the SSC Evaluation
Kit by an external 12VDC power line; e.g., to prevent additional noise caused by the DC-DC converter or to allow
more than a 78mA load current at the 12VDC line.
The 5VDC supply line is generated by a common LDO linear regulator supplied by the 12VDC line. The
microcontroller (type ATmega32) handles the communication with the ZMDI SSC IC by using its specific
Evaluation Software running on the user’s PC. All serial protocols are implemented in the microcontroller’s
2
TM
TM
TM
software (I C™ / SPI / LIN / LINwire / OneWire / ZACwire ), except that for LIN, a discrete LIN level shifter is
used. The communication status of the microcontroller is displayed by four LEDs. The microcontroller controls
both power lines by electronic switches, so a defined power ON/OFF procedure is practicable. The EEPROM
programming voltage Vpp is also provided by the SSC Communication Board and controlled by the microcontroller via a discrete transistor circuit. To use this function, a 12VDC power supply is needed.
The ZMDI SSC Evaluation Board can be connected to the SCC Communication Board via the 50-pin connector.
Additionally, all system signals can be checked via the 50-pin header on board. This can also be used for
connecting external electronics.

5.1.
Special Functions of the SSC Communication Board
Trigger
Each SSC IC needs a special start procedure to switch into the Command Mode. Therefore a special timing and
communication procedure after power-on is required. On board this function will be provided by the corresponding
supply channels (KS5V: 2.7 to 5.5 V; KS12V: 8 to 16 V). Both channels are controlled via electronic switches.
To connect user-specified hardware, a separate trigger signal can be provided at the TRIG pin. This trigger signal
will be activated by the trigger command (For details, refer to section 7 and the ZMDI command syntax
spreadsheet SSC_CB_Command_Syntax_Version_y_xx.xls, where y_xx refers to the current silicon revision).
5.2.
Pull-up
Some interfaces (ZACwire™, OneWire™, and LINwire™) need an additional pull-up resistor to support reliable
data communication. To eliminate any parasitics caused by this pull-up resistor on the power supply of the SSC
IC and data output pin for the selected SSC IC interface, the pull up resistor must be disconnected from the circuit
TM
during the start-up phase. This function will be supported by the switchable pin Tr_D2. The ZACwire ,
TM
OneWire™, and LINwire protocol manipulate the signal Tr_D2 automatically. Connect the pull-up resistor or an
external pull-up source to Tr_D2.
5.3.
ADC Channel ADC0 to ADC4
The SSC Communication Board provides five ADC channels: ADC0 to ADC4. The ADC0 channel is labeled
TM
“OWI” (ZACwire ); in OWI mode, the ADC0 is not available. The ADC channels have a resolution of 10-bits. To
use these channels, refer to the SSC Communication Board command descriptions that are given in
SSC_CB_Command_Syntax_Version_y_xx.xls.
5.4.
Digital Channel D2 to D7
The SSC Communication Board provides six bidirectional digital channels D2 to D7. The D2 channel is not
TM
available during ZACwire™, OneWire™, and LINwire communication (reserved for pull-up switching). The output channels have tri-state functionality. To use these channels, refer to the SSC Communication Board
command descriptions in SSC_CB_Command_Syntax_Version_y_xx.xls.
5.5.
RX/TX
The RX/TX connector provides the serial protocol that is used for communication between the USB serial bridge
and the microcontroller.
5.6.
LIN Channel
The LIN channel provides a 12V LIN-complaint signal to connect LIN-compliant devices. A discrete circuitry
converts the 5V microcontroller signal to the 12V LIN level and vice versa. To use this channel, refer to the SSC
Communication Board command descriptions in SSC_CB_Command_Syntax_Version_y_xx.xls.

The I²C communication protocol is provided at the SCL (clock) and SDA (serial data) pins. To use this channel,
refer to the SSC Communication Board command descriptions in SSC_CB_Command_Syntax_Version_y_xx.xls.
On the board, there are pull-up resistors of 4.7kΩ each, which are connected to the switched KS5V power line.
5.8.
SPI Channel
The SPI communication protocol is provided at the MOSI (Master Out Slave In), MISO (Master In Slave Out), and
SCK (Clock) pins. To use this channel, refer to the SSC Communication Board command descriptions in
SSC_CB_Command_Syntax_Version_y_xx.xls.
5.9.
OWI Channel (ZACwireTM)
At the OWI (One Wire Interface) pin, the OneWire™ and ZACwire™ communication protocol is provided. To use
this channel, refer to the SSC Communication Board command descriptions that are given in
SSC_CB_Command_Syntax_Version_y_xx.xls.
5.10. Vpp Pulse Generation
At the Vpp pin, a special EEPROM programming pulse can be provided. To use this pulse, refer to the SSC
Communication Board command descriptions in SSC_CB_Command_Syntax_Version_y_xx.xls. Important: The
kit must be supplied via USB or by an external 12VDC supply via screw terminal KL1.
5.11. 5V Channel
At the 5P pin, a stabilized voltage of 5VDC is available to supply external circuits. The KS5V channel provides the
same voltage, controlled by the microcontroller via an electronic switch to provide special IC start-up scenarios.
The SSC Evaluation Board can be supplied via the KL2 screw terminal and KS5V by an external 2.7 to 5.5 VDC
supply by setting the K5 jumper from “int” to “ext.” To use this channel, refer to SSC Communication Board
command descriptions in SSC_CB_Command_Syntax_Version_y_xx.xls regarding trigger pulse generation.
5.12. 12V Channel
At the 12P pin, a stabilized voltage of 12VDC is available to supply external circuits if the kit is supplied via USB.
When supplying the kit with an 8 to 16 VDC by an external power supply via screw terminal KL1, this voltage is
available at the 12P pin. The KS12V channel provides the same voltage, as controlled by the microcontroller via
an electronic switch to provide special IC start-up scenarios. To use this channel, refer to the SSC Communication Board command descriptions in SSC_CB_Command_Syntax_Version_y_xx.xls.

SSC Evaluation Kit Controller Language
The SSC Communication Board contains a modern microcontroller with an 8-bit wide internal RISC processor.
The communication between this microcontroller and the higher level unit is addressed by a serial protocol. The
USB-to-serial converter transforms this signal into a USB-complaint data stream. To control the SSC
Communication Board with a PC, the USB data will be forwarded to a virtual serial interface (virtual COM port).
This communication is implemented by the USB2COMM driver (see section 3.2).
To control the SSC Communication Board, a software interface is necessary. For the simplest case, a terminal
program (such as Hyper Terminal) can communicate using the corresponding virtual COM port via defined
commands with the SSC Communication Board hardware. The configuration for this method and for all user
software is

A basic terminal program adapted to the communication parameters of the SSC Communication Board is
available on the ZMDI web site. The communication procedure for the different software modules is based on this
model. To access the program, a free customer login account for the ZMDI website is required. To set up a login
account, go to www.zmdi.com and click on “Login” in the upper right corner. Then follow the dialog instructions to
set up a user name and password. To download the terminal program, login and navigate to the “Evaluation
Tools” page in the Sensor Signal Conditioner section: click on PRODUCTS > SENSOR SIGNAL CONDITIONERS
> SSC TOOLS (http://www.zmdi.com/ssc-tools). Under the heading “SOFTWARE,” click on the link titled “SSC
Terminal Program Rev. X” (where X is the current revision) and follow the dialog instructions as needed to
download the zip file for the program and extract the file. Click on the extracted file to activate the program.
The possible commands can be classified as READ, WRITE and SPECIAL commands. Every command that is
sent to the hardware is answered by an acknowledge plus “value” or a not-acknowledge plus corresponding error
code. For the typical IC data structure, refer to the corresponding SSC IC data sheet and/or functional description.
Depending on the type of sensor signal conditioner, a special start-up sequence is necessary to switch the IC to
the digital communication mode. To handle this sequence, a special trigger command is provided. The trigger
values can be selected with a special preparation call. This call configures the channel, which must switch off and
on before the first data packet will be sent. The execution of this trigger command can be selected within a
subsequent read/write procedure. The switch-off time before a trigger event is executed can also be programmed.
The default value is 300ms.
Example:
