The PICO-II8IDO4A is an ideal OEM USB solution for adding embedded reliable and robust multi-function I/O capabilities to any embedded computer supporting Pico-I/O™ and the SUMIT™ A connector. The Pico-I/O™ board standard is the latest, smallest, stacking form factor for embedded I/O since the PC/104 standard using half the area of a PC/104 module. Up to four of the PICO-II8IDO4A can be mounted together. Featuring 4 solid state FET outputs, 8 optically isolated digital inputs and 2 high-resolution analog inputs, the unit is the smallest of its kind for multi-function control and monitoring using USB. The digital inputs accept AC or DC signals as high as 32 volts and are interfaced via a 26-pin IDC type vertical header. The pinout allows a simple accessory cable to interface to one of the many available external screw terminal boards. The FET outputs can switch customer supplied voltages from 5 to 34V at UP TO 3A! The outputs are de-energized at power-up to prevent an unintended control output signal. The output connections are available via a 16-pin IDC vertical header type connector. Two analog inputs are also available on the 26-pin connector for a well-rounded multi-function, multi-purpose super-compact PICO solution. The module draws all required power from the SUMIT™ connector of the SUMIT based embedded computer. The Pico-I/O™ size specification (4320 sq. mm) is exactly half of the PCB area of the popular PC/104 (8640 sq. mm) embedded board standard. The small size and easy connection makes the unit an excellent choice for a variety of embedded applications such as mobile, robotics, kiosks, and embedded medical and machine equipment. The PICO-II8IDO4A is designed to be used in rugged, industrial, and mobile environments and also has the option to be upgraded to extended temperature (-40 to +85°C) specifications for military and defense applications. The PICO-II8IDO4A is available with optional cable assemblies, screw terminal boards and external signal conditioning boards.
