CANTOR PCB Description

The CANTOR is organized around 5 PCBs.

The most important is the CPU board; it contains all the computing intelligence of the
CANTOR.

The other PCBs are surface PCBs holding the human interface included in the desk (keys,
LEDs, potentiometers).

The CPU board makes the function which are linked to external world (DMX link,display...).

To work correctly, he needs 3 supply voltages given by the power supply SNP3034. These
supply voltages are :

5 volt around 1.8 A

+ 15 volt around 300 mA

- 15 volt around 300 ma, but you must add the lighting desk which can use 300 mA if a
BIGLITE lamp is used.

A. CPU CANTOR Board : PCB1264

1. CPU Z180
The CANTOR uses a Z180 central processing unit. This CPU includes all the possibilities of
the famous Z80 and also new additional features. The followings are used:
internal, external clock generator
a memory management unit (MMU) which allows the Z180 to access up to 1024 Kbytes
of physical memory partitioned in 3 blocks, but internal manipulations leave on a logical
64Kbytes space.
two channels direct memory access controller (DMAC)
two channels asynchronous serial communication interface (ASCI) with their own baud
rate generator
programmable timers
interrupt controller.

A quartz of 16Mhz is used to provide the clock signal at 8MHz. This master clock is also used
to give different timings to other devices.

The ASCI channel 1 of the CPU performs the serial line at 9600/2400 baud.
The internal ASCI clock generator cant be used for this purpose and needs an external
divider by 26 (U43) from main 8MHz clock.
On old version of PCB 1264, serial messages are sent trough U1 (MC1488) for transmission
and from U2 (MC1489) for reception.
New generation of PCB 1264 uses a RS232 driver MAX 252 or a NM 232 to isolate RS232
serial communications from main 12V supply; in this case maximum baud rate should be
limited to 9600 bauds.
Note that handshake signals coming from Z180 are buffered and supported by connector J1.

2. RESET AND WATCHDOG


The Max 696 (U42) performs the RESET active low and Watchdog function and the RAM
memory backup switching.

When LLin is under (or falls below) approx. 1.3 volt the reset will be generated.
The reset timing is about 50 msec. During reset activity Vout is switched to the Lithium
backup battery and provides the memory supply.
The 10K (R126) pot adjusts the supply RESET level to be about 4,82 volts.

If jumper W3 at input WDI of MAX 696 is inserted the Watchdog feature occurs; if no
transitions are made at this input by the CPU after the 100 msec reset timeout period, the
Max 696 generates a 50msec reset pulse.
Leaving input WDI unconnected disables the watchdog feature.

The supply level of the lithium battery is checked on reset and a caution message will be sent
if found under 2.5 volt.
The transistor MOS Q6 switches the battery level on CPU request to ADC converter.
If needed the DUBOX connector P12 can replace a temporary defect battery and offers a
potential link to a 3 to 5 Volt range external backup supply voltage.

3.MEMORY
The CPU can use up to 128 Kbytes of EPROM shared by U41.
This EPROM can be from a 27C256 (32K X 8) to a 27C010 (128K X 8)and must have at least
a better access timing than 120 Nsec.
The position of the inserted EPROM and jumper W2 selects the capacity in use.
Normally 27C512 are chosen and W2 connect 2 to 3.

The RAM are build around one or two 55257 32kbytes static RAMs with an access time
better than 100Nsec.
These 128 Kbytes of RAM are battery backup saved during power down.
The typical consumption on the lithium battery is about 2 micro A which allows a life time of
more than 6 years typically.

The RAM memory decoder uses a special IC (U32) BCT2414 which feeds trough the RAMS
chip select decode from 5V or battery backup supply accordingly to the resets state.
Selection between EPROM and RAM are made with A17 on 128K boundaries.

CANTOR 48 channels uses 64 kb of static RAM directly soldered on PCB 1264.


CANTOR 96 channels needs 64 kb of suplementary static RAM. This upgrade of static RAM
is provided by PCB 1395 trough connector P13.

4. I/O CPU DEVICES


Data bus connection between I/O devices and CPU can use two kinds of interconnection
mechanism:
I/O which must be read by the CPU and are directly connected to the CPU bus named
D0 to D8 (e.g. SCC).
buffered I/O devices (named DB0-8) allowing connection to surface data bus and slow
CPU I/O devices.
I/O devices are selected on IORQ transition to 0 and if address bit A7=0.
U23 (74HC244) separates CPU data bus from the remainder of the I/O CPU board devices.
Unfortunately devices like latches need data hold time after writing rising edges.
Therefore is provided the BUS HOLDER make around U22 (74HC244) & R81. With help of this
device, during non access time, the bus floats but maintains the previous state of the data.

A. Watchdog
If W3 jumper is inserted a transition must occur at this input before every 100 msec
watchdog timeout, avoiding a general RESET state (see RESET). Normally the watchdog
feature is enabled and jumper W3 inserted.

B. Serial communication controller(SCC)


The CANTOR uses a 8530 (U20) for serial communications which performs the DMX DIMMER
INPUT and OUTPUT link and the MIDI communication. DMX dimmer input/output uses SCC
channel 1 and DMA channel 1, so jumper W1 must be inserted trough 5-6. MIDI input meets the
MIDI requirements and the MIDI speed of 31.25 Kbaud and uses SCC channel 2. Interrupts are
generated on break reception transmission and channel 2 management.
New generation of PCB 1264 use (U4 NM515) a DC/DC converter to isolate DMX input/output
from de 5 V main power supply.
One LED DMX on surface board KEY is lighting when data are sent to output DMX line. This
function is made by U16 monostable which detects transitions on the DIMMER output line.

C. Memory card interface


Memory card interface can share up to 1MBytes space memory card. All memories accesses are
software made which would permit use of different memory card variety like PROM, EEPROM
etc..
It offers also the possibility to work in pseudo static environment avoiding timing problems (flat
cables).
Four latches (U25,U26,U27,U33) connected to extended data bus maintain data during read
write operations. However during read operations U25 must be disabled and buffer U24
directly connected to data bus to perform the read operation to the CPU.
When card is inserted into its connector it shorts the CDET input which can be tested by
polling. Before every read write operation, the RAM card battery backup voltage is fed to
the ADC logic conversion trough AR1. R55 limits current flow (if existing) on power down
state.
The 5V supply of the memory card is given by Q3 and Q4 from 15V supply on CPU request.

D. 7 segment display
The latch U34 maintains 7 segments code reflecting current software loop in use ( for more
details see test operating chapter in appendix1).

CANTOR
Technical Manual

E. External lines
CANTOR uses 8 external input lines which can be polled by software. All these manual inputs
must be handled with care because they arent isolated from 5V main supply voltage.
However R25 to R30 protect inputs against dangerous voltage. State of external lines are
transferred to CPU trough the buffer U14 directly connected to CPU data bus. A modification
state can be obtained pulling these inputs near GND (e.g. connecting them to pin 9 of J5).

F. Multiplexed I/O devices


CANTOR uses many I/O which share a general purpose multiplexed bus. All the multiplexed I/
O devices are build around:
latches U5,U6,U8,U10,U21 used for writing operations
buffers U44,U45,U46,U47 used for reading operations

KEYBOARD MATRIX ENCODER DECODER


Key matrix encoder decoder is generated on CPU board avoiding the need of a key matrix
encoder decoder on each surface PCB. Connections to the five surface PCBs are made
trough flat cables.
Key matrix is organized around 7 write lines and 24 read columns. Writing a correct pattern
on latch U6 supplies the selected line of the 7 matrix key encoders. Invertor U19 & U28 buffer
the state of U6. Column reading is performed by U44 & U45 & U46; a pushed key will give a
reading 0 and debounce is software made. Diodes are inserted between each flash button
and the common line avoiding ghost key reading on the PCB 1265.
New generation of PCB 1264 use (U4 NM515) a DC/DC converter to isolate DMX input/output
from de 5 V main power supply.

LEDs MATRIX
All the LEDs of the surface board are encoded as a matrix of 5 lines and 23 columns. But
selection of the lighting LED is decoded and generated on the CPU board. The software must
select which line is activated writing to U5 latch. One of the darlington PNP transistors (Q7 to
Q11) supplies the respective LED line. Writing correct information on latches U6,U8,U10
selects in the line which LED must be activated. Latches are buffered by open collector
drivers ULN 2803 sinking about 30 mA per LED. To avoid supply shift due to LED lighting on
the PCB, an internal PCB 5V line feeds the power darlington transistors.

LCD DISPLAYS
Messages and selection requests are sent to user trough two LCD displays. Obviously these
LCD displays are mounted on surface board. Choice was made around dots matrix LCD unit
with Super Twisted High Contrast technology allowing a very large viewing angle range. LED
backlighting uses array of LED arranged on the viewing area allowing a high luminance
combined with a very long life time.
LCD selection and activation are generated on the PCB 1264 (CPU) but LCD displays are used
on :
PCB 1266 submaster which uses a 40 characters LCD display. Latch U6 hold LCD data
bus state named KB0 to KB7 while selection is made by latch U5 trough EDL1 signal.
Register selection and read/write operations are controlled by outputs P0 & P1 of latch
U10.Contrast can be fine adjusted by R82.
PCB 1267 crossfade which uses a 16 characters LCD display. Latch U6 holds LCD data
bus state named KB0 to KB7 while selection is made by latch U5 trough EDL2 signal.
Register selection and read/write operations are controlled by outputs P0 & P1 of latch
U10. Contrast can be fine adjusted by R83.

To avoid supply shift an optional 5V line can feed, if necessary, trough P10 & P11 the array of
LED backlighting which have the disadvantage to have a high consumption on 5V supply.

DIGITAL TO ANALOG AND ANALOG TO DIGITAL CONVERSIONS


All the conversions are based on a 8 bits digital to analog converter U12 (DAC0800). This
DAC can be used alone to generate the output level to the 0-10V analog outputs.
The DAC can also be used to perform analog to digital conversions; with help of a
comparator which compares the analog input to be converted with an increasing voltage
given by the DAC. After every increasing voltage on the DAC a software loop must test if the
generated voltage is always lower than input to be converted. As soon as the voltage of the
DAC reaches the voltage to be converted comparator AR4-B changes state. This form of
conversion is called successive approximations conversion and for a full 8 bits ADC
conversion needs 8 successive digital settings (MSB,2SB...LSB) and tests by the CPU.
The DAC uses the multiplexed bus held by latch U10. This converter is a current converter
and voltage across R76 reflects output voltage. This output voltage can be used to generate
analog voltage (DAC conversion), but is also used if one ADC conversion is in progress. In
this case feedback to processor is generated with AR4-B comparator and buffer U47.
Multiplexer U36 (4051B) selects which voltage must be converted. Selection of this
multiplexer is made by latch U17 and open collector invertor U18.
NB: U39 4 bits latched to 16 bits decoder is used to hold selection of the analog multiplexers
used on surface board (see surface board PCB).

AUDIO INPUT
This input is used when special effects must be in accordance with sound.
The audio input signal is connected to J6 ; left and right signal (if stereo) are summarized
before amplification. Impedance input is about 20Kohm. If balanced inputs are used,
connecting pin 5 or 3 to one phase of the input signal and using pin 4 or 1 as active phase
would perform the same as using a transformer.

The first stage of the audio interface is an automatic gain controller (AGC) which accepts a
level from 50mV to 50V. Transistor Q2 adjusts current level injected on amplifier stage AR2-A
to get an average output signal level.

Following AGC stage, the audio signal at correct level is buffered and fed to the ADC logic
conversion trough analog multiplexers U36.

B. CANTOR SURFACE BOARD


1.GLOBAL OVERVIEW
Surface board includes keys matrix, LEDs lighting matrix, and potentiometers supply and
demultiplexer.

Keys matrix and LEDs matrix management (line and row selection) are generated on CPU
board (PCB 1264) and fed to all the surface board trough flat cable.

For potentiometer level acquisition theyre 2 solutions in use; it depends of the number of
potentiomers held by the board.
if few potentiometers are used, levels are directly sent to CPU board and selected by U36
(4051).This solution is used on:
- PCB 1267 crossfade
- PCB 1268 key
PCB holding too many potentiometers use on board a private analog multiplexers.
Address selection of multiplexers is generated on CPU board by latch U17; U35 (4515B)
generate the enable used by multiplexers on surface board. This solution is used on:
- PCB 1265 where the 24 potentiometers are selected by multiplexers U2,U4,U5.
- PCB 1266 where the 16 potentiometers are selected by multiplexers U1,U2.

All the potentiometers are supplied in 5V with a private line avoiding reading shift
perturbations and noise.

2.PCB 1265 24 POTENTIOMETERS

PCB 1265 Internal view

Including all the functions seen later, this PCB has the additional feature of generating output
0-10V analog voltages. Each output voltage needs a sample and hold which maintains the
value to be generated during approximately 20 mSec. Software must after each main loop
actualize the new output voltages. Generation of one of these voltages needs 3 steps:

conversion of the digital value in the analog voltage with help of the DAC on CPU board;
AR3 adjusts level from 0-5 Volt to 0-10Volt output level.

This voltage is sent to the selected analog output with help of demultiplexers U1,U3,U6.

The selected output of demultiplexer then loads a 100 nF capacitor which holds the level
of the selected analog output. This voltage is buffered trough op amp TL084 to give up to
3 mA to external world. The voltages generated are also used to produce on green LEDs
the dimming state of the corresponding output. R29,R30,R31 can be modified (to 27K) to
configure analog output voltage to current without need of the optional PCB1284.

6.PCB 1284 SOCAPEX ANALOG OUTPUTS


Analog output voltages generated on PCB 1265 are either directly sent to external world
trough flat cable and a connector DB25 either to an optional selection PCB1284. The position
of the incoming flat cable from PCB 1265 to this PCB can be used to select one of the 3
analog output protocol:

P3 :voltage 0-10V outputs (max 3mA)

P4 :current outputs 0-300microA

P1 :insertion of diode if voltage is selected which gives the ability to select multiple
outputs the highest

The analog outputs are then fed to a SOCAPEX 37 contacts connector. Pin 1 to 24 hold
respectively outputs 1 to 24; pin 25 to 37 are connected to ground.
