IP Core Software for FPGA Chips

SERCOS International (Santa Rosa Beach, FL) has introduced Easy-I/O, a freely downloadable IP core software for low-cost FPGA chips that allows SERCOS III to be integrated into basic I/O slave devices with minimal development and integration effort. To minimize the costs for a slave interface, the functionality of a SERCOS III slave was reduced to a minimum. Thus, the Easy-I/O IP core supports only the SERCOS III realtime and service channels.

High-Speed Digitizer

Agilent Technologies Inc. (Santa Clara, CA) has introduced the Acqiris DP1400 high-speed digitizer. Designed in a standard short PCI card format, the compact DP1400 combines data converter ASIC technology with component integration for a reduced power consumption of less than 15 W. It can be used in all standard PCI bus slots and is ideal for test applications including semiconductor component testing, hard disk drive production testing, and industrial non-destructive testing. With the optional SAR mode, the onboard memory is separated into multiple buffers. As data is acquired into one buffer, another can be read out through the 32-bit/66 MHz PCI at up to 250 MB/s. In applications where the total data rate of the acquisition is below the PCI data bandwidth, the Acqiris DP1400 with SAR mode can acquire continuously, missing zero events.

Digital I/O Board

The new MSXB 078 digital I/O expansion hardware from Microstar Laboratories, Inc. (Bellevue, WA) combines simultaneous operation on all channels with an isolated ground to protect applications from sources of error. The expansion board provides 16 digital inputs and 16 digital outputs on an HD 62 connector with headers for alternate connectors. Eight rackmounted MSXB 078 boards connected to a single DAP board controlled by a PC give it 128 digital outputs and 128 digital inputs. More digital outputs, up to a total of 1008, can be driven by a single DAP board simply by adding more MSXB 078 boards.
