The mPCIe-AIO16-16F family is an ideal solution for adding high-speed analog I/O capabilities to any computer with an mPCIe slot.
The mPCIe-AIO16-16F is a 16-bit resolution A/D & D/A board with two simultaneous 1MHz A/D converters, providing 8 single-ended (pseudo-differential) or 4 differential analog inputs, per ADC. Each channel can be independently software configured to accept any input ranges.
Two digital I/O bits, each individually software programmable for use as an input or an output. These bits feature software-selectable alternate functions including use as ADC trigger, DAC trigger, and more.
Four analogue outputs with uni- and bipolar 5 and 10 volt ranges and a ±2.5V range round out the feature set.
The “FDS” model includes a new DMA-driven hardware-timed buffered DAC output feature, “DAC Waveform Streaming”. This feature allows one or more of the DACs to output voltage levels at a software-configurable rate as high as 1 million samples/second. Although the maximum rate is divided by the number of DACs being used, all DACs’ outputs update simultaneously on the hardware clock’s tick — all four DACs can output simultaneous data at 250 kilosamples/second, or one at 1 MHz! All the data is transferred by DMA to minimize CPU utilization, with IRQs so applications can send additional buffers of data as needed.
This tiny analogue I/O board provides the user with everything needed to start acquiring and controlling signals in a variety of applications. The mPCIe-AIO16-16F data acquisition board can be used in many current real-world applications such as embedded equipment monitoring, precision PC-based and portable environmental measurements, and mobile data acquisition. The board is designed to be used in rugged industrial environments and is double sided, mPCIe F1 sized.
Applications: Optical Networking, Instrumentation, Multichannel Data Acquisition and system monitoring, Automatic Test Equipment, Process Control and Industrial Automation, Power line monitoring.
Accessories and Connections
Available accessories include a variety of screw terminal boards for quick and easy connectivity as well as 2mm and 2.5mm mounting hardware. Alternately, custom hardware cables and/or interfaces can be produced to fit your specific application requirement.
