Configurable I/O module

Flexible and cost-effective digital  I/O module, configurable and reconfigurable with your preferred  set and channel count of I/O functionality at any time with configuration files provided by Speedgoat.

Selectable FPGA code module functionalities covered include PWM generation and capture, encoder measurement and simulation, high speed protocols including SPI, I2C, and UART (RS422/RS485), Cam and Crank measurement and simulation, and triggering and synchronization support. Spare digital I/O line can be used for general purpose digital on/off requirements.

Delivery of each configurable I/O module also includes a cable and terminal board for loopback testing and to quickly connect with your hardware. The I/O pin mapping for your selection of I/O functionality is provided together with your custom configuration file. Delivery of the I/O module includes Simulink driver blocks with configurable dialog fields and Simulink test models.

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.
