Product short description:
  • 16 digital I/O channels
  • High impedance
  • Extended temperature
  • PCIe Bus Interface

The AP418 monitors or controls the on/off (high/low) status of up to 16 devices. Each channel can be used as an input or output.

The AP418 monitors or controls the on/off (high/low) status of up to 16 devices. Each channel can be used as an input or output.

All 16 input channels can be configured with interrupts for a change of state or level detection of any bit. The TTL input threshold includes hysteresis for increased noise immunity.

In order to ensure safe, reliable control under all conditions, output operation is “fail-safe.” That is, the outputs are always off upon power-up and are automatically cleared following a software reset.

Loopback monitoring of critical control signals is easy since the input and output circuitry are connected in tandem to each channel.

Designed for COTS applications these digital I/O modules deliver high-density, high-reliability, and high-performance at a low cost.

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

The AP418 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 stand-off 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 AP418 maintains the same functionality and memory map of the existing Industry Pack modules providing a smooth transition to the AcroPack I/O modules.

Performance Specifications

Digital Inputs

Input channel configuration: 16 non-inverting buffered inputs with a common connection .
Input signal voltage range: 0 to 60V DC, maximum.
Input signal threshold: TTL compatible. Limited to TTL levels of 0.8V DC (max.low level) and 2.0V DC (minimum high level).
Interrupts: Change-of-state and level on channels 0-15.

Digital Outputs

Channel configuration:
Each output can be configured to be a low-side switch or a high-side switch. Low-side switch has open-drain output with source connected to common. High-side switch has open-drain output with source connected to excitation voltage source.
Output ON current range: 0 to 2A DC, per channel (5A total). No deration required at elevated ambients.
Output Rds ON Resistance: Low-side switch – 0.1 ohm Max.; High-side switch – 0.2 ohm Max.

PCI Express Base Specification

Conforms to revision 2.1
Lanes: 1 lane in each direction.
