PCD-8006

The PCD-8006 card is a additional type of multifunctional DAQ PCI card series offering bidirectional digital ports.

As its main function the card provides six 8-bit bidirectional digital ports, software configurable as input or output. Moreover, the power-up configuration of DIO ports can be easily modified by the software utility and stored into onboard EEPROM memory.

The card also includes IRQ logic with interrupt sources derived not only from the internal timer, but from rising or falling edge of each digital port signal (i.e. 96 individually programmable interrupt sources).

The PCD-8006 card is based on a FPGA unified core providing implementation of PCI Express bus and all peripheral circuitry, e.g. solution that gives maximum control and supervision over full functionality. High concentration of control algorithms within FPGA allows to add or modify functions without redesign the board.

All DAQ PCI Express cards are equipped CardID - two segment DIP switch that allows to recognise up to 4 cards (especially when installing multiple cards of the same type).

Standard and low-profile version

The cards are supplied in two versions - standard as PCD-8006 and as PCD-8006/LP. Except for the different I/O connectors (see the following paragraphs), all other features of both versions are identical.

In the case of a standard version, first three digital ports are accessible via the D-Sub 25 connector, the fourth digital port with the counter function via the D-Sub 9 connector then (PCE-8019 cable); both of them are located on the card mounting bracket. Last two digital ports are accessible via the PCE-16xx series adaptor (not included), using the card mounting bracket with two D-Sub 25 or D-Sub 9 connectors.

In the case of a low-profile version, first three digital ports are accessible via the D-Sub 25 connector located on the card mounting bracket. Next three digital ports are accessible via the PCE-8025/LP adaptor (not included), using the card mounting bracket with one D-Sub 25.

Delivery details

The product packet includes the card and InfoCD with drivers and user manual.
