Diamond Systems DS-MPE-GPIO
36 Buffered Digital I/O Lines, up to 4 24-Bit PWM, up to 4 Counter/Timers
The DS-MPE-GPIO is a rugged, low cost 36-channel digital I/O PCIe MiniCard module that is ideal for digital I/O expansion in embedded and OEM applications.
An FPGA provides 36 buffered digital I/O lines that can be configured to operate in simple I/O mode in the form of 8-bit and 4-bit ports, or in counter/timer and pulse width modulator modes. Two ports are fixed digital I/O ports with programmable direction in 8-bit groups. One port can operate as either a 4-bit DIO or 4 counter/timers with 1 input and 1 output per counter. One port can operate as either 8 DIO or up to 8 pulse width modulators.
Extended temperature operation of -40°C to +85°C enables the board to operate in environments with extreme temperature swings, such as vehicles or outdoor installations.
The DS-MPE-GPIO product comes with the 36-channel PCIe MiniCard digital I/O module, the CK-DAQ02 cable kit with two digital I/O cables, and a hardware kit with mounting screws.
