Configurable I/O Module 

The IO394 I/O module is a mPCIe-compatible, configurable I/O module with 50k logic cells, 13 differential, ESD-protected M-LVDS I/O lines and a AMD® Artix®-7 chip. All the I/O lines are individually programmable as input or output.

The IO394 I/O module also has a basic heatsink to facilitate thermal management. The heatsink can be used to install additional cooling solutions like passive or active heatsinks or to provide a thermal connection to an enclosure.

This I/O module is ideal for closed-loop controls and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulations using MATLAB® and Simulink®.

Key Features

  • 13 x differential, ESD protected M-LVDS I/O lines with a 100 Ω termination resistor
  • Configuration of the I/O module using Simulink® blocks from the Speedgoat I/O Blockset library as part of the Simulink® Real-Time™ workflow

Mean time between failures (MTBF)* 987,000 hours
MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) - MTBF values shown are based on calculation according to MIL-HDBK-217F and MIL-HDBK-217F Notice 2; Environment: GB 20°C. The MTBF calculation is based on component FIT rates provided by the component suppliers. If FIT rates are not available, MIL-HDBK-217F and MIL-HDBK-217F Notice 2 formulas are used for the FIT rate calculation.
