  • Page 21: Introduction

    CHAPTER 1 GETTING STARTED Introduction The PL3307 is a companion decoder module for the SE3300 and SE4500 imager engines, which controls the imager, acquires images, and decodes 1D and 2D symbologies. For information on the imager engines, refer to the SE3300 Integration Guide and SE4500 Integration Guide.

  • Page 22: Theory Of Operation

    The PL3307 processes the image to identify the target bar code(s), decodes them, and transmits the decoded data to the host. Set various parameters provided in this guide to adjust the performance of the imager engine and PL3307 to match the application or desired usage profile.

  • Page 23: Power Management

    USB (SNAPI, USB HID Keyboard, etc.) The PL3307 automatically manages its power usage, including USB suspend mode. Additionally, when drawing power from the USB bus, the PL3307 and imager engine do not exceed the USB limit of 500 mA (see Interfaces on page 1-4).

  • Page 24: Interfaces

    PL3307 Decoder Integration Guide Interfaces The PL3307’s host interface is configured via two pins on the host interface connector. Logic low (0) is set by grounding the respective pin. Logic high (1) requires no connection. See the appropriate table for the host...

    LED device. Additional buffering is required. The PL3307's beeper output ranges from 2.352 KHz to 2.963 KHz. The beeper output is a 50% duty cycle square wave at maximum volume, 12.5% at low volume.

  • Page 27: General Information

    The mounting holes for the PL3307 include exposed copper that may, if necessary, be used to electrically ground the decoder to the host using metal screws. If installing the PL3307 in a host where there is a potential to inject ground noise, use nylon or other non-conductive hardware. In this case the PL3307 ground is provided through the host connector.

  • Page 28: Power Supply Noise

    The PL3307 decoder module includes several high-power components that dissipate heat during operation. These components can exhibit high temperatures when the PL3307/imager engine pair is running at 60 frames per second with full illumination. Use care when integrating the PL3307/imager engine pair into the target application.

  • Page 29: Pl3307 Decoder Board

    There are four mounting holes (1.78 mm / 0.07 in.) on the decoder board. Figure 2-1 provides an outline drawing for the PL3307 decoder board. Position the board in the host equipment so that the connecting interface cable reaches the engine. The PL3307 boards contain components and circuitry on both sides.

  • Page 30: Pl3307 Electrical Information

    Power Supply Requirements The PL3307 decoder board can be powered from one of three possible sources: Host 3.3 VDC, Host 5 VDC, or Micro USB 5 VDC. The PL3307 uses an intelligent hardware multiplexer to configure the most efficient power supply arrangement for the combined PL3307/imager engine system.

  • Page 141: Chapter 7: Ssi Interface Introduction

    This chapter describes the system requirements of the Simple Serial Interface (SSI), which provides a communications link between Motorola decoders (e.g., scan engines, slot scanners, hand-held scanners, two-dimensional scanners, hands-free scanners, and RF base stations) and a serial host. It provides the means for the host to control the decoder or scanner.

  • Page 142: Revision

    7 - 2 PL3307 Decoder Integration Guide All commands sent between the decoder and host must use the format described in the SSI Message Formats section. SSI Transactions on page 7-3 describes the required sequence of messages in specific cases.

  • Page 143: Ssi Transactions

    If you enable ACK/NAK handshaking, all packeted messages must have a CMD_ACK or CMD_NAK response, unless the command description states otherwise. This parameter is enabled by default. Motorola recommends leaving this handshaking enabled to provide feedback to the host. Raw decode data and WAKEUP do not use ACK/NAK handshaking since they are not packeted data.

  • Page 144: Transfer Of Decode Data

    7 - 4 PL3307 Decoder Integration Guide Transfer of Decode Data The Decode Data Packet Format parameter controls how decode data is sent to the host. Set this parameter to send the data in a DECODE_DATA packet. Clear this parameter to transmit the data as raw ASCII data.

  • Page 145: Communication Summary

    Set the same value for both the host and decoder. NOTE You can temporarily change the Serial Response Time-out when the host takes longer to process an ACK or longer data string. Motorola does not recommend frequent permanent changes due to limited write cycles of non-volatile memory.

The new values then take effect for the next transaction.

    With hardware handshaking disabled, the PL3307 wakes from low power mode upon receiving a character. However, the PL3307 does not process this character or any others it receives during the 7 ms period following wakeup. Wait at least 7 ms after wakeup to send valid characters.

  • Page 268: Redundancy Level

    9 - 84 PL3307 Decoder Integration Guide Redundancy Level Parameter # 4Eh The decoder offers four levels of decode redundancy. Select higher redundancy levels for decreasing levels of bar code quality. As redundancy levels increase, the decoder’s aggressiveness decreases. Select the redundancy level appropriate for the bar code quality.

    9 - 86 PL3307 Decoder Integration Guide Security Level Parameter # 4Dh The decoder offers four levels of decode security for delta bar codes, which include UPC/EAN and Code 93. Select increasing levels of security for decreasing levels of bar code quality. There is an inverse relationship between security and decoder aggressiveness, so choose only that level of security necessary for any given application.

  • Page 271: Intercharacter Gap Size

    Symbologies 9 - 87 Intercharacter Gap Size Parameter # F0h, 7Dh The Code 39 and Codabar symbologies have an intercharacter gap that is typically quite small. Due to various bar code-printing technologies, this gap can grow larger than the maximum size allowed, preventing the decoder from decoding the symbol.

    9 - 88 PL3307 Decoder Integration Guide Macro PDF Features Macro PDF is a special feature for concatenating multiple PDF symbols into one file. The decoder can decode symbols that are encoded with this feature, and can store more than 64 Kb of decoded data stored in up to 50 MacroPDF symbols.

  • Page 273: Macro Pdf Transmit / Decode Mode Symbols

    Macro PDF sequence only when the entire sequence is scanned and decoded. Use the beeper and LED signals provided with the PL3307 when using this mode to ensure proper user feedback. If the decode data exceeds the limit of 50 symbols, there is no transmission because the entire sequence was not scanned.

    9 - 90 PL3307 Decoder Integration Guide Transmit Macro PDF Control Header Parameter # B8h When enabled, this activates transmission of the control header, which contains the segment index and the file ID, in Macro PDF symbols. For example, the field may be: \92800000\725\120\343. The five digits after the \928 are the segment index (or block index), and \725\120\343 is the file ID.

    Symbologies 9 - 91 Flush Macro Buffer This flushes the buffer of all decoded Macro PDF data stored to that point, transmits it to the host device, and aborts from Macro PDF mode. Flush Macro PDF Buffer Abort Macro PDF Entry This clears all currently-stored Macro PDF data in the buffer without transmission and aborts from Macro PDF mode.
