Support for internal or external triggering simplifies the synchronization of operations to specific events.

Designed for COTS applications these general purpose I/O modules deliver high-speed and high resolution TTL communication.

AcroPack modules are RoHS compliant and ideal for military, defense, automation, aerospace, scientific, and development labs industries.

The AP483 module is 70mm long, this is 19.05mm longer than the full-length mini-PCIe card at 50.95mm. The board’s width is the same as mPCIe board of 30mm and they use the same mPCIe standard board hold down standoff and screw keep out areas.

A down facing 100 pin Samtec connector will mate with the carrier card. Fifty of these signals are available as field I/O signals.

The AP483 maintains the same functionality and memory map of the existing Industry Pack modules providing a smooth transition to the AcroPack I/O modules.

  • Description

    An application programming interface with function routines for AcroPack modules/carriers. Customizable for other operating systems.

    Function Libraries for VxWorks

    Acromag’s software development tools greatly simplify the interface between AcroPack I/O boards and your application program. Libraries provide easy-to-use C function routines that quickly integrate with your application. The C functions are ready for use “as-is,” but they are also easily customized for your unique application.

    DLL Driver for Windows

    This package provides DLL driver level support for Acromag’s line of AcroPack products.

    AcroPack Windows Driver Software consists of low – level drivers and Windows Dynamic Link Libraries (DLLs) that facilitate the development of Windows applications accessing Acromag AcroPack I/O modules.

    The software includes kernel drivers and DLLs for both 32 and 64-bit versions of Windows. Applications developed to run on 32-bit versions of Windows use the 32-bit kernel drivers and 32-bit DLLs. Applications developed to run on 64-bit versions of Windows use the 64-bit kernel drivers and either the 32-bit or 64-bit DLLs. Except where noted otherwise, the usage of the 32-bit and 64-bit DLLs is identical.
