The VL-MPEe-A1 is an extremely small and rugged analog input module based on the industry-standard Mini PCIe module format. Unlike typical I/O expansion boards, Mini PCIe allows additional I/O functions to be added to a system with almost no increase in overall system/package size. Mini PCIe modules provide a simple, economical, and standardized way to add I/O functions to embedded computer products.
In a very small package, this analog board provides eight single-ended or four differential input channels. The VL-MPEe-A1 model provides 12-bit resolution, while the VL-MPEe-A2 model provides 16-bit resolution.
Operating at 100,000 samples per second, each input channel is individually configurable for an input range of 0 to 5V, -5 to +5V, 0 to +10V, and -10 to +10V.
In addition, the board provides three general purpose digital I/O lines which are independently configurable for input, output, or interrupts.
This rugged product is designed and tested for full industrial temperature operation (-40º to +85ºC). It also meets MIL-STD-202G specifications for shock and vibration, making it at home in harsh environments.
The VL-MPEe-A1 board is supported by device drivers and the VersaAPI Application Programing Interface. The VersaAPI includes pre-defined calls to send or retrieve data from the on-board I/O ports. These calls greatly simplify development of the user code needed to access these ports. On the VL-MPEe-A1 board, the VersaAPI supports the on-board A/D channels and GPIO lines. The VersaAPI is compatible with Windows, Windows Embedded, and Linux operating systems.
This analog input board is compatible with a variety of popular x86 operating systems including Windows, Windows Embedded, and Linux.
The module utilizes PCIe signaling and can be used in any system that supports PCIe signaling at the Mini PCIe socket.
Product customization is available, even in low quantities. Options include FPGA customization, conformal coating, application-specific testing, BOM revision locks, special labeling, etc.
VersaLogic products are designed for use by OEMs working in a variety of market applications: Aerospace, Defense, Energy, Industrial, Security, Medical, Military, Robotics, and Transportation. VersaLogic delivers extremely reliable standard and customized embedded computers backed with unsurpassed service and the highest availability in the market.
