AcPC341: Analog Input CompactPCI Board, Simultaneous Conversion

• 16 differential inputs

• ±10V DC input range

• Eight 14-bit A/D converters with simultaneous sample and hold

• 8µS conversion time for 8-channel bank

AcPC341 boards provide fast, high resolution, simultaneous A/D conversion of eight channels.

These boards have sixteen analog inputs which are sampled as two eight-channel banks. Eight A/D converters (ADCs) permit simultaneous conversion of all eight channels in a bank. All 16 channels share two generous 512-sample memory buffers. Conversion of each bank requires only 8µS, and all 16 channels can be sampled in just 16µs.

This board is ideal for high-speed data acquisition. A large memory buffer reduces CPU interactions for increased overall performance.

Flexible configuration options give you extensive control over the conversion process. The channels or bank to be converted, timing, scan mode, and other parameters are user-programmable. Interrupt support adds further control to interrupt upon a programmable threshold when the data in memory exceeds the set threshold.

F604 – 3U CompactPCI® Side Card FireWire

The F604 is a 4HP FireWire and multimedia extension card for 3U Intel® based CompactPCI® single-board computers. It can be used in combination with the F14 and further boards of the Intel® low power family. The IEEE 1394 high-speed serial bus is often used in combination with modern high-end digital camera equipment instead of USB. Thus, the F604 side-card extends the standard features of a powerful multi-core or Pentium® M CPU board by one 400 MBit/s FireWire interface connected via PCI Express® links. It further provides a DVI-D single link port, an HD audio – in or out – port as well as one, optionally two COM interfaces.

In addition an onboard 2.5″ SATA hard-disk slot is available on the F604.

The F604 is directly plugged to the right side of the respective single-board computer. A robust connector makes for high mechanical stability. It is delivered with an 8HP front panel, replacing the 4HP front panel of a 3U single-board computer and thus resulting in a solid one-piece front panel.
