USB I2C/IO - Instant Solution from I2C Control from PCs
Pittsford, New York. USB-I2C/IO interface board - newly available from Saelig Co. - provides a simple "drop-in" 12Mbps USB interface to a host PC for quickly connecting external hardware. USB-I2C/IO provides 20 bits of user-configurable digital I/O, a 90Kbps I2C interface, and an 8-bit wide data bus for fast FIFO transfers.
USB-I2C/IO is a small (3.0" x 2.25") board useful for a wide range of applications, such as: USB-interfacing to 90kHz I2C components, USB to 20 x I/O connections like LEDs or switches, I2C Test Fixture interfacing, data acquisition, etc. A handy USB Status LED lights on enumeration, and blinks to indicate USB traffic (off when suspended).
The full-speed USB interface provides your application hardware with a "Hot Plug and Play", 12Mbps, industry standard connection to a PC host, using Cypress' AN2131QC USB micro-controller. A power configuration jumper allows USB-I2C/IO to be powered by USB or by external circuitry. The included device driver, DLL, and example application software make it easier than ever to access your application hardware from a PC.
The software provides support for connecting multiple boards. This makes the USB I2C/IO a great solution when multiple equipment instances are required (test fixtures, production equipment, instruments, etc.). Each board can be uniquely identified by the application software via a serial number.
The board can be configured to download its firmware upon connection to the PC, or to boot from the I2C bus. An onboard I2C EEPROM is included on the board, providing 16KB of storage for code or data.
USB-I2C/IO is available now for $79.00 (qty 1) from Saelig Co. Inc. NY 585-385-1750; 585-385-1768 fax; email@example.com; www.saelig.com).
