A micro-fit USB header connector is provided in parallel with the high retention type B connector and can be used for stacking and embedded applications.

A DIN rail mounting provision is available for installation in industrial environments. The OEM version (board only) features PC/104 module size and mounting compatibility.

The USB-AO Series utilizes a high-speed custom function driver optimized for a maximum data throughput that is 50-100 times faster than the USB human interface device (HID) driver used by many competing products. The USB-AO Series is supported for use in most operating systems and includes a free Linux (including Mac OS X) and Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista/7 compatible software package. This package contains sample programs and source code in Visual Basic, Delphi and Visual C++ for Windows. Also provided is a graphical setup program in Windows.
