Interworld Electronics is excited to announce the release of PICO-II8IDO4A from Acces I/O Products Inc. Designed for expansion on Pico-ITXe single board computers, this dense, multifunction product features 8 individually optically isolated inputs, 4 fully protected solid-state FET outputs capable of switching up to 3A each, and two 16-bit analogue inputs.

The isolated digital inputs are polarity insensitive and accept AC or DC voltages up to 31VDC or AC RMS. In addition jumper selectable filtering per input channel reduces high frequency AC and voltage transients. The analogue inputs accept unipolar 0-5V signals and can sustain up to 4K samples per second.

The tiny module occupies just half the area of a PC/104 board making the PICO-II8IDO4A perfect for deployment into space-limited applications. Bus and power connections are built on the SUMIT™ (Stackable Unified Module Interconnect Technology) connector, which allows simple connection of PCI Express, LPC, SPI and USB 2.0 buses. The SUMIT™ connector allows up to four Pico-I/O modules to be stacked on a single Pico-ITXe processor board.

The PICO-II8IDO4A is a high speed USB 2.0 device that utilizes a custom designed driver optimized for a maximum data throughput that is 50-100 times faster than the USB human interface device (HID) driver used by many competing products.

The optical isolation makes the module ideal for use in control and instrumentation applications where high-voltage protection is required. With appropriate sensors, the two 16-bit analogue inputs provided by the PICO-II8IDO4A allow the monitoring of a variety of system parameters such as voltage, temperature and humidity.
