Board Controls Mix Of Analog And Digital I/O Modules

Sept. 1, 1998

This high-speed brain board can remotely control a mix of analog and digital I/O modules using firm's Pamux protocol. The SNAP-B6 is designed for use with firm's SNAP B series mounting racks with a capacity of 32 analog channels or 16 analog with 32 digital channels. SNAP-B6 provides power and flexibility in a compact design and includes an on-board µP that continually scans all I/O points on the mounting rack to perform necessary conversions and update dual-port RAM. The host computer transfers data along the Pamux bus by reading from or writing to the dual-port RAM. A single 8-bit read or write requires only 2.3 µs. All configuration and driver software is included.
