New Family of PC/104 16-Bit Analog I/O Modules Excels in Rugged Applications - Diamond Systems Diamond Systems DMM-16R-AT

Micromax's supplier, Diamond Systems, is a leading global supplier of compact, rugged, I/O-rich embedded computing solutions for real-world applications in a broad range of markets. They have unveiled their latest additions to its industry-leading Diamond-MM family of 16-bit analog I/O modules, DMM-16R-AT and DMM-16RP-AT.

These rugged I/O modules offer 16-channels of 16-bit analog input, 4-channels of 12-bit analog output and 16 programmable digital I/O lines. The new I/O modules work with both PC/104 and PC/104-Plus form factors. The built-in autocalibration feature provides highest measurement accuracy regardless of time and ambient temperature.

The DMM-16R/RP-AT features top performance and flexibility at a mid-range price. It has 16 single-ended / 8 differential analog inputs with both unipolar and bipolar input ranges and programmable gain. It has a maximum sampling rate of 100KHz, supported by a 512-sample FIFO with a 256-sample threshold for gap-free high-speed A/D sampling. Both single-channel and multi-channel scan sampling modes are supported. The A/D can be triggered with a software command, the on-board programmable timer, or an external signal. All these features give these boards greater adaptability to real world applications.

The DMM-16R-AT is the PC/104 ISA bus version of the product. The DMM-16RP-AT adds the PCI-104 PCI connector to provide dual ISA and PCI interface options with automatic bus selection and manual override. Both ISA and PCI buses offer the same 100KHZ A/D performance.

The DMM-16R/RP-AT modules offer full backward compatibility with Diamond’s existing DMM-16-AT board in terms of mechanical design, connector pinout, and software interface, offering customers a cost-reduced means of extending the lifecycle of their existing applications. Diamond’s Universal Driver programming library offers full support for these boards including example programs with source code. A unique graphical control panel program for Windows and Linux provides instant access to all of the board’s features and enables quick prototyping and system diagnostics.

These Diamond analog I/O modules were designed for rugged applications and harsh environments such as mobile, on-vehicle, factory floor or outdoor applications. Extended temperature operation of -40ºC to +85ºC is tested and guaranteed. The modules are compatible with MIL-STD-202G shock and vibration specifications.
