USB to RS485

I am looking for a USB to 485 converter that has a programmbale processor/MCU/PIC between the 485 and the USB so that I can program the DLL portion of a protocol into the converter. This protocol will then only pass/acept Application layer messages from the USB side.

No. These devices do not have a programmable processor between the ports.

If RS485 is converted to RS232 then, by virtue of there being COM ports on a regular pc, (and some low-level programming) the pc can be used to act as intermediary between the USB and RS485.

That solution doesnt work. We want to implement the Data Link portion of the protocol in the device so that it is not sensitive to the timing and variable resouce loading of the computer. The Data link portion of the protocol is responsible for passing the token, token recovery,  wrapping and sending application layer queries, unwrapping and extracting application layer data from response. The device must do all this. The only data that passes from/to the computer is the application layer stuff.

In which case:  If BlackBox don't do it - probably it doesn't exist (unless you were prepared to get out your soldering iron):-
