PC/104 analog I/O cards introduced by WinSystems for military, security, and industrial applications

ARLINGTON, Texas, 21 June 2010. WinSystems Inc. in Arlington, Texas, is introducing two low-cost PC/104-compatible analog I/O cards for military, security, industrial, transportation, and medical embedded computing applications. The PCM-MIO-G-AD-1 is a 16-channel, 16-bit analog input card and the PCM-MIO-G-A-1 is an 8-channel, 12-bit analog output card, which also support 48-lines of digital I/O. These small, 90-by-96-millimeter expansion boards operate over a -40-to-85-degree-Celsius temperature range, and are based on the Linear Technologies precision converters and voltage references. The cards do not require calibration.

ARLINGTON, Texas, 21 June 2010. WinSystems Inc. in Arlington, Texas, is introducing two low-cost PC/104-compatible analog I/O cards for military, security, industrial, transportation, and medical embedded computing applications.

The PCM-MIO-G-AD-1 is a 16-channel, 16-bit analog input card and the PCM-MIO-G-A-1 is an 8-channel, 12-bit analog output card, which also support 48-lines of digital I/O. These small, 90-by-96-millimeter expansion boards operate over a -40-to-85-degree-Celsius temperature range, and are based on the Linear Technologies precision converters and voltage references. The cards do not require calibration.

The input ranges for the PCM-MIO-G-AD-1 are 0-5 volts, plus-or-minus 5 volts, 0-10 volts and plus-or-minus 10 volts. Two independent, 16-bit A/D converters support as many as 16 single-ended or 8 differential channels or various combinations of both.

The conversion speed is 100 kilosamples per second. The PCM-MIO-G-A-1 has eight independent, 12-bit D/A converters on board. The output voltage ranges are 0-5, 0-10, 5, and 10 volts. All output channels are programmable and can be updated and cleared individually or simultaneously.

The PCM-MIO-G-AD-1 and PCM-MIO-G-A-1 boards have 48 lines of digital I/O individually programmable for input, output, or output with read-back. The lines are TTL-compatible and can sink 12 milliamps which supports direct connection to industry-standard, optically isolated AC and DC signal conditioners.

Isolated signal conditioners protect, filter, and isolate the analog input and output signals from electrical transients. Both cards come with drivers for C, Linux, and Windows XP Embedded. For more information contact WinSystems online at www.winsystems.com.
