  • Page 21: Introduction

    Chapter 1 Getting Started Introduction The Symbol PL4507 is a companion decoder module for the Symbol SE4500 imager engine, and controls the imager, acquires images, and decodes 1D and 2D symbologies. For information on the SE4500 imager engine, refer to the Symbol SE4500 Integration Guide, p/n 72-112996-xx.

  • Page 22: Theory Of Operation

    If necessary, the engine automatically adjusts illumination, exposure, and other parameters to obtain the best quality image. The SE4500 sends the image to Symbol PL4507 decoder board. The PL4507 processes the image to identify the target bar code(s), decodes them, and transmits the decoded data to the host.

  • Page 103: Chapter 6: 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 104

    6 - 2 Symbol PL4507 Decoder Integration Guide Table 6-1 lists all the SSI opcodes the decoder supports. It identifies the SSI partner allowed to send a message of each type. The host transmits opcodes designated type H. The decoder transmits type D opcodes, and either partner can transmit Host/Decoder (H/D) types.

  • Page 105: 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.

    6 - 4 Symbol PL4507 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 107: Communication Summary

    ACK/NAK Option Enable or disable ACK/NAK handshaking. This handshaking is enabled by default and Motorola recommends leaving it enabled. Disabling this handshaking can cause communication problems, as handshaking is the only acknowledgment that a message was received, and if it was received correctly. ACK/NAK is not used with unpacketed decode data regardless of whether or not it is enabled.

  • Page 108: Serial Response Time-out

    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.
