PC/104 A/D and D/A Modules do not require calibration.

Press Release Summary:

Operating over -40 to +85°C range, 16-channel PCM-MIO-G-AD-1 analog input card and 8-channel PCM-MIO-G-DA-1 analog output card are 90 x 96 mm expansion boards based on Linear Technologies' converters and voltage references. In addition to supporting 0-5, ±5, 0-10, and ±10 V input ranges, PCM-MIO-G-AD-1 features 2 independent, 16-bit ADCs. Along with output voltage ranges of 0-5, 0-10, ±5, and ±10 V, PCM-MIO-G-DA-1 has 8 independent, 12-bit DACs. Both cards also support 48 DIO lines.

Original Press Release:

Low-Cost PC/104 A/D and D/A Modules Operate from -40° to +85°C Yet Don't Require Calibration

Arlington, TX - Two new, low-cost PC/104-compatible analog I/O cards were announced today by WinSystems. The PCM-MIO-G-AD-1 is a 16-channel, 16-bit analog input card and the PCM-MIO-G-DA-1 is an 8-channel, 12-bit analog output card. Both cards also support 48-lines of digital I/O. These small, 90 x 96mm expansion boards are designed to meet customer requirements for accurate analog and digital I/O over a -40° to +85°C temperature range. They are designed for industrial, medical, security, transportation, and Mil/COTS applications. Based upon Linear Technologies' precision converters and voltage references, these cards do not require calibration which results in quick, easy setup; plus it eliminates the necessity for readjustment and recalibration to installed units in the field.

The input ranges for the PCM-MIO-G-AD-1 are 0-5V, ±5V, 0-10V and ±10 volts. Two independent, 16-bit A/D converters support up to 16 single-ended or 8 differential channels or various combinations of both. The conversion speed is 100K samples/sec. The PCM-MIO-G-DA-1 has eight independent, 12-bit D/A converters on board. The output voltage ranges are 0-5V, 0-10V, 5V, and 10V. All output channels are programmable and can be updated and cleared individually or simultaneously.

Both the PCM-MIO-G-AD-1 and PCM-MIO-G-DA-1 boards have 48 lines of digital I/O individually programmable for input, output, or output with read-back. The lines are TTL-compatible and can sink 12 mA which supports direct connection to industry-standard, optically isolated AC and DC signal conditioners. Isolated signal conditioners protect, filter, and isolate the analog input and output signals from electrical transients.

Both cards are supplied with free drivers for C, Linux, and Windows® XP Embedded which can be downloaded free of charge from the website.

The PCM-MIO-G-AD-1 list price is $249 and the PCM-MIO-G-DA-1 list price is $279. For either of the products, delivery is from stock to three weeks.
