IP236A-8: 16-bit D/A Analog Output with FIFO Buffers Description

IP236A-8 modules have 16-bit D/A converters (DAC) to provide highly-accurate analog voltage outputs. FIFO buffers enhance control over the transfer of data to the DAC and improve efficiency.

Each channel has a dedicated 128 sample FIFO buffer and its own clock. A start trigger transfers digital values from the buffer to the DAC. Three modes offer several choices for the data transfer on each channel. Continuous mode cycles data through the buffer for a given channel and is ideal for waveform generation. As new data loads into the FIFO, the output signal instantly updates without stopping the waveform. Single mode moves one value from the buffer to the converter for each trigger. External trigger mode synchronizes channel conversions to an event or other IP236A-8 modules.

Specifications

Analog Outputs

Output configuration: 8
D/A Resolution: 16 bits
Output ranges: ±5V, ±10V, 0 to 10V (jumper-selectable).
Data sample memory: 128 sample FIFO buffer on each channel.
Maximum throughput rate: Outputs can be updated simultaneously or individually.
One channel: 100KHz (10μS/conversion)
Eight channels: 100KHz (10μS/8 ch).
DAC programming: Independent. Input registers and FIFOs are directly loaded.
System accuracy: 0.0061% of 20V span maximum corrected error (i.e. calibrated) at 25°C with the output unloaded.

Short circuit protection: Indefinite at 25°C.

IP Compliance (ANSI/VITA 4)

Meets IP specifications per ANSI/VITA 4-1995.
IP data transfer cycle types supported: Input/output (IOSel*), ID read (IDSel*), Interrupt select (INTsel*).
Access Times (8MHz clock): All functions: 0 wait states (250nS cycle) except FIFO buffer write: 2 wait state (500nS cycle),
Interrupt read/write: 2 wait states (250nS cycle).

Environmental

Operating temperature: 0 to 70°C (IP236A-8) or -40 to 85°C (IP236-8E models).
Storage temperature: -55 to 125°C (all models).
Relative humidity: 5 to 95% non-condensing
Power: +5V (±5%): 250mA maximum. ±12V (±5%) from P1: 210mA maximum.
MTBF: Consult factory.
