New PCIe bus interface boards controlling up to 48 digital devices

Acromag announces
the addition of a new range of mezzanine boards to their PCIe-based AcroPack Series.
The new PCIe bus interface boards combine a tech-refresh design with a flexible

The AcroPack AP471 offers
48 general-purpose, bidirectional I/O points to economically monitor and
control a large quantity of digital devices. Inputs and outputs of the AP471
are CMOS and TTL compatible. Programmable polarity event interrupts are
software programmable for change-of-state, positive or negative input level
transitions on all 48 channels. Outputs go to a failsafe state upon power-up for
safety or reset without any instantaneous toggling to prevent false alarms.

A down-facing
plug-in 100-pin connector ensures a secure connection for the I/O without any
cabling. These modules plug into AcroPack PCIe, VPX, and XMC carriers in any
combination for embedded applications running on Linux, Windows, or VxWorks operating

For easy integration
of the AcroPack modules with real-time software application programs, Acromag
offers C libraries for Windows, Linux and VxWorks systems; these libraries
provide generic routines (source code included) to handle reads, writes,
interrupts, and other functions. Demonstration programs enable the developer to
quickly exercise the I/O modules before attaching the routines to the
application program. This diagnostic tool can save hours of troubleshooting and

The latest COTS line
of AcroPacks is SWaP-C optimised and RoHS compliant, and ideal for scientific
development labs, military and aerospace applications, the defence industry and
automation applications.
