I/O-Module DB-MC

The I/O module DB-MC realizes 20 analog input channels and eight analog output channels as well as four Serial Synchronous Interfaces (SSI). The module is controlled by a Xilinx Spartan-IIE FPGA, which can also be used to implement simple control applications. Via the broadcast bus all modules that are attached to the RAPTOR base system can access the DB-MC. Thus, dynamically reconfigurable FPGA-based control implementations can be realized. Furthermore, coupling several DB-MC modules facilitates the realization of large virtual I/O subsystems.
