I need to enable RS-485 for the first time on my graphics client plus board. Do I need a specific vxworks serial driver for RS-485 or is this already included in the ADS/Vxworks BSP? Regards, John Lynch.
I responded to John directly. For the benefit of other readers, here's a summary:
The RS-485 drivers aren't part of the current VxWorks release. Options include: 1. Using J1708 if your application can use half-duplex RS-485. 2. Modifying the VxWorks serial drivers for RS-485 3. Having ADS create the 485 drivers

p.s. I've moved this to the VxWorks FAQ for reference by other VxWorks users.
