Press Release Summary:
Model DT9818 runs on USB power and offers Â±500 V of galvanic isolation for maintaining signal integrity. Providing 8 or 16 analog inputs, 2 analog outputs, 16 digital I/O lines, and 2 counter/timers, unit allows simultaneous operation of all subsystems at throughput rates of up to 150 kHz. Analog outputs can be used to generate sine, rectangle, triangle, or other waveforms with glitch energy of less than 1.0 nV/s. DT9818 ships with full complement of software.
Original Press Release:
Data Translation Rolls Out Embedded USB Acquisition Board
Joining Data Translation's line of multifunction USB data-acquisition boards for OEMs is the DT9818, a board aimed at embedded applications. The DT9818 does not require an external power supply, since it runs completely on USB power. It does, however, offer ±500 V of galvanic isolation-critical for industrial embedded systems.
The DT9818 provides 8 or 16 analog inputs, 2 analog outputs, 16 digital I/O lines, and 2 counter/timers and allows simultaneous operation of all subsystems at throughput rates of up to 150 kHz. This board-only OEM version allows you to embed data-acquisition capability directly into your USB system. Galvanic isolation prevents ground loops, maximizes analog signal integrity, and protects the computer. Using the analog outputs, you can generate sine, rectangle, triangle, or other waveforms with glitch energy of less than 1.0 nV/s. The board also provides true 16-bit resolution for both the analog input and analog output subsystems.
The DT9818 ships with a full complement of software to get you up and running. You can develop software in .NET, Visual Basic, Visual C#, Visual C++, and Visual J#, or you can use one of Data Translation's ready-to-measure applications. For instance, Measure Foundry application builder lets you create test and measurement applications without writing any code.
The DT9818 costs $895 in OEM quantities.
