PCI Express Card with 16 SE/ 8 DE 16-bit Analogue Inputs and 4 Analog Outputs & 16 DI/O
The PCIe-ADIO16-16F is an ideal solution for adding high-speed analog I/O capabilities to any computer with a PCI Express slot.
The PCIe-ADIO16-16F is a 16-bit resolution A/D & D/A card with two simultaneous 1MHz A/D converters, having a total of either 16 single ended, 8 differential, or 8 single ended and 4 differential inputs. Each channel can be independently software configured to accept any of 7 input ranges. Four analog outputs with 5, 10, ±5, ±10, and ±2.5V ranges are provided. Sixteen Digital I/O bits feature advanced functionality including IRQ generation, External DAC Load, ADC Trigger, and ADC Start, as well as a dedicated Watchdog Status Output pin.
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 transfered by DMA to minimize CPU utilization, with IRQs so applications can send additional buffers of data as needed.
This analog I/O card provides the user with everything needed to start acquiring and controlling signals in a variety of applications. The PCIe-ADIO16-16F 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 card is designed to be used in rugged industrial environments and is a half-length half-height PCI Express Gen2 1×lane card.
Applications: Optical Networking, Instrumentation, Multichannel Data Acquisition and System Monitoring, Automatic Test Equipment, Process Control and Industrial Automation, Power Line Monitoring.
