FeaturePak DAQ Module with 2 MHz A/D, D/A, Autocalibration and Digital I/O 

A new data acquisition model for a new standard is designed for the FeaturePak embedded I/O expansion module specification. The FeaturePak-DAQ1616 from Diamond Systems is a data acquisition I/O card integrating Diamond’s newest and fastest analog I/O technology and a PCI Express host interface. 

This board measures 1.7 in. x 2.55 in. and offers 16-bit A/D sampling at 2 MHz, supported with an expanded 16K-sample FIFO for reliable data collection in any operating system. Analog output capability is sixteen 16-bit channels with programmable output ranges. All analog I/O features are enhanced with our industry-leading autocalibration technology, featuring independent calibration factors for each input and output range to guarantee maximum accuracy across all operating modes and the entire operating temperature range. 

Digital I/O features include seven 8-bit ports with both bit-wide and byte-wide direction control, two 32-bit up/down counter/timers with programmable input source and gate, four 24-bit pulse-width modulation circuits with 0-100% duty cycle and a watchdog timer. The board is available in analog I/O and analog out-only configurations. 

The included driver software includes a high-level programming library for all of Diamond’s  I/O boards, as well as for the data acquisition circuitry on the SBCs and Embedded-Ready Subsystems. All data acquisition features are supported by easy-to-use function calls, resulting in a reduced learning curve and shortened application development time. The Universal Driver works with Linux, Windows XP, Windows CE and DOS. Application examples and projects are included for each function, each board and each operating system, in order to provide a quick starting point for learning and development.
