Press Release Summary:
Featuring four 50-pin connectors with I/O module rack compatible pin-outs and interleaved grounds, Model 5I22 enables creation of any kind of specialized I/O function. Each connector provides 24 I/O bits for total of 96 programmable I/O bits that are 5 V tolerant and can sink 12 mA. Bus master and DMA capability optimize PCI transfer rates, while 48 MHz crystal oscillator provides reference clock, which can be multiplied by FPGAs DLLs for higher clock speeds.
Original Press Release:
New Product Release: 5I22 PCI Anything I/O
The MESA 5I22 is a general purpose programmable industrial I/O card for the PCI bus. The 5I22 uses a 1M or 1.5M gate Xilinx FPGA for all logic, so it is truly an "Anything I/O" card. The FPGA configuration is downloadable from the PCI bus side, allowing creation of almost any kind of specialized I/O function.
The 5I22 uses four 50 pin connectors with I/O module rack compatible pin-outs and
interleaved grounds. Each connector provides 24 I/O bits for a total of 96 programmable I/O bits. All I/O bits are 5V tolerant and can sink 12 mA. Pull-up resistors are provided for all pins so that they may be connected directly to opto-isolators, contacts etc. Bus master and DMA capability allow fast PCI transfer rates. A 48 MHz crystal oscillator provides a reference clock which can be multiplied by
the FPGAs DLLs for higher clock speeds.
Several pre-made functions are provided, including a 16 axis host based servo motor
controller, a 32 channel quadrature counter, many versions of the SoftDMC motion controller including 4 and 8 axis versions for step motors, brush type servo motors and BLDC servo motors, a simple 96 bit parallel I/O port, and a 16 channel, 32 bit timer counter card capable of running at 100 MHz. VHDL source is provided for all functions.
Six layer circuit card construction is used to minimize radiated EMI and provide optimum ground and power integrity. Price of the 1M 5I22 is $219 in 100's, the 1.5M 5I22 is $249 in 100s.
