MSCBL113-01: 100-line Digital Cable Adapter Panel
Technical Note TN-248 Version 1.01
The Microstar Laboratories 100-line Digital Cable Adapter Panel, part number MSCBL113-01, is compatible with all PCI a-Series Data Acquisition Processor boards. The MSCBL113-01 brings the Data Acquisition Processor board's digital input/output port out to the back panel of the host computer. One end of the panel connects to the digital input/output port while the other end has a 100-line male connector secured to a mounting bracket. This 100-line connector on the mounting bracket is compatible with any of the standard 100-line ribbon cables with an unshielded square connector.
To install the MSCBL113-01:
The digital output lines of the MSCBL113-01 have less drive current than that of the Data Acquisition Processor it is attached to. The table below shows the typical voltage for a given drive current when attached to an a-Series Data Acquisition Processor. Ioh and Voh are the drive current and voltage for a digital output when driving high. Iol and Vol are the drive current and voltage for a digital output when driving low.
Please contact Microstar Laboratories for information on how to design large systems using the MSCBL113-01 or use an MSCBL113-01 with a non a-Series Data Acquisition Processor.
