Interworld Electronics have released the USB-AI16-16 series Multifunction Analogue I/O boards from Acces I/O Products. The USB-AI16-16 series are high speed, high resolution, precision USB 2.0 based data acquisition, control or signal analysis modules that are ideal for standalone environmental test stations, compact production test equipment, portable testers, avionics and other applications.
Two models are available. The USB-AI16-16E provides 250 kHz sampling, while the USB-AI16-16A features a 500 kHz maximum sample rate. Common features include: 16-bit resolution analogue to digital conversion, 16 single ended or 8 differential ended unipolar or bipolar inputs, 8 input programmable input ranges, auto DAC error calibration and extensive triggering options. Additional onboard I/O includes sixteen high-current 64mA digital I/O lines and a 16-bit programmable counter timer.
The USB-AI16-16 series is supported for use in most operating systems and includes a free DOS, Linux and Windows 95/98/Me/NT/ 2000/XP/2003 compatible software package. This contains sample programs and source code in "C" and Pascal for DOS, and Visual Basic, Delphi, C++ Builder and Visual C++ for Windows.
For applications that do not require the high precision of 16-bit A to D conversion the USB-AI12-16 series Multifunction Analogue I/O boards are ideal, providing all of the features and speed of the USB-AI16-16 series with 12-bit A to D resolution.
