The PMC-16AIO168 provides a cost effective, high-speed 16-bit analog input/ output and digital output board. Eight analog output channels (at 300,000 samples/ sec per channel) are updated either synchronously or asynchronously, and support arbitrary waveform generation. The analog inputs are configurable as either 16 single-ended or 8 differential input channels, and can be scanned continuously or in bursts. Four digital outputs are also offered (output only). Inputs and outputs have a common software selected range of ±10V, ±5V or ±2.5V, and are accessed through independent 32K-sample FIFO buffers. Internal auto-calibration networks permit calibration to be performed without removing the board from the system. Software controlled test configurations include a loop-back mode for monitoring all analog output channels.
