Interworld Electronics has release of the USBP-DIO16RO8 from Acces I/O Products Inc. The USBP-DIO16RO8 is ideal for adding embedded, easy-to-install buffered TTL/LVTTL digital I/O and relay output capabilities to any computer with a USB port. The USBP-DIO16RO8 is a USB 2.0 (1.1 compatible) high-speed device that supports the highest speed available with the USB Bus. The unit is hot pluggable allowing quick connect or disconnect whenever you need additional I/O in your system.

Featuring 8 Form C (SPDT) electro-mechanical relays and 16 TTL/LVTTL buffered digital I/O lines, the unit is the smallest of its kind for digital monitoring and control. The digital I/O lines have 32mA of both sink and source to drive external components and are available via a 34-pin IDC header. The pinout allows a simple accessory cable to interface to our 50-pin external signal conditioning products. The board can be switched from 5V to 3.3V signalling to match a particular device connected. The 8 relay outputs are de-energized at power-up to prevent an unintended control output signal. Data to the relays is latched. The relay contacts are available via a 26-pin IDC vertical header-keyed box type connector.

The USBP-DIO16RO8 draws all required power from the USB port, no external power adapter is required. 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 USBP-DIO16RO8 is designed to be used in rugged, industrial, and mobile environments and has the option to be upgraded to extended temperature specifications.

What makes the USBP-DIO16RO8 unique is that its PCB size and mounting holes match the PICO-I/O form factor (60mm by 72mm). This allows USBP-DIO16RO8 to be added to any PICO-ITXe stack by connecting it to an available USB port. The USBP-DIO16RO8 board can also be installed using standoffs inside other enclosures or systems either stand-alone or in multiple stacks.
