Digital I/O PCI card for automatic test equipment introduced by North Atlantic Industries

BOHEMIA N.Y., 1 Oct. 2009. North Atlantic Industries (NAI) in Bohemia, N.Y., is introducing a multifunction PCI card for applications requiring digital-to-synchro-resolver (D/S) and digital-to-LVDT/RVDT (DLV) simulation and measurement, as well as digital I/O and communication functions in automatic test equipment (ATE) for aerospace, defense, industrial, and automotive applications.

BOHEMIA N.Y., 1 Oct. 2009. North Atlantic Industries (NAI) in Bohemia, N.Y., is introducing a multifunction PCI card for applications requiring digital-to-synchro-resolver (D/S) and digital-to-LVDT/RVDT (DLV) simulation and measurement, as well as digital I/O and communication functions in automatic test equipment (ATE) for aerospace, defense, industrial, and automotive applications.

The 76CS3 is one-slot card that can be configured for six separate D/S channels at 1.5/2.2 VA, three separate D/S channels at 3.0 VA, or D/S in combination with an A/D converter, D/A, discrete I/O, TTL I/O, RTD, LVDT/RVDT, S/D, or R/D.

The 76CS3 also offers communication modules such as RS232/422/485, MIL-STD-1553, CANBus, and ARINC 429. This design eliminates the need for specialized, single-function cards by providing functions on one card that can be controlled via the PCI bus.

Each of the functions of the 76CS3 Multifunction PCI card is programmable at the channel level. Automatic background BIT testing is always enabled and continuously checks the health of each channel. This testing is transparent to the user, requires no programming, and does not interfere with the normal operation of the card.

The 76CS3 is available with operating temperature ranges of 0 to 70 degrees Celsius and -40 to 85C. For more information contact North Atlantic Industries online at www.naii.com.
