The PMC424 digital I/O module provides 24 differential input/outputs, 16 TTL input/output channels, and four 16-bit multi-function counter/timers.

The 16 TTL input/output channels can be programmed as an input or an output on a channel basis. The 24 differential input/output channels are programmed as inputs or outputs on an 4-channel port basis. All input channels can be enabled for change of state, low, or high level transition interrupts.

Four 16-bit multifunction counters/timers can be configured for pulse width modulated output, watchdog timer, event counter, frequency measurement, pulse width measurement, period measurement, or one shot pulse output. The four 16-bit counters can also be configured into two 32-bit counter/timers. A conduction-cooled version is also available.

Input Interrupts

40 channels of interrupts are available for high-to-low, low-to-high, or any change-of-state event type.
Debounce: Selectable for each channel. User-selectable (5.6μS, 50.4μS, 408.8μS, or 3.276mS).

Counter/Timers

Counter/timer configuration: Four 16-bit counters can be configured into two 32-bit counters.
Counter input: Each counter has an INA, INB, and INC port. These TTL input signals control start/stop, reload, event input, external clock, trigger, and up/down operations.
Counter output: Each counter has one output signal. The TTL output is used for waveform output, watchdog active indicator, or 1.6μS pulse upon counter function completion. Programmable as active high or low.
Clock frequencies: Selectable for 20MHz, 10MHz, 5MHz, 2.5MHz, 1.25MHz or external up to 8MHz.
Minimum I/P event: 100nS (debounce disabled).
Minimum pulse measurement: 100nS (debounce disabled).
Minimum period measurement: 200nS (debounce disabled).
Minimum gate/trigger pulse: 100nS (debounce disabled).
Board crystal oscillator: 20MHz.

PMC Compliance

Conforms to PCI Local Bus Specification, Revision 2.2 and CMC/PMC Specification, P1386.1.
4K Memory Space Required: One Base Address Register.
Signaling: 5V Compliant, 3.3V Tolerant.

Environmental

Operating temperature: 0 to 70°C (PMC424 / R) or -40 to 85°C (PMC424E / CC)
Storage temperature: -55 to 105°C.
Relative humidity: 5 to 95% non-condensing.

PMCSW-API-VXW: VxWorks® function libraries

  • Description

    Application Programming Interface (API)

    Acromag’s software development tools greatly simplify the interface between the 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.

    This powerful program lets you fully exercise the libraries and your hardware before running the actual application. These diagnostics will save you hours troubleshooting and debugging your applications. You can set addresses, set up registers, read real-world inputs, or drive outputs. The demonstration program steps you through the exact functions that are called in your application.

    Target any CPU

    Acromag provides direct support for VxWorks when using PowerPC, x86 and 68000 CPU boards. The VxWorks C Library includes support for x86 PCI, MV167 and MV2700 CPU boards.  Each library contains detailed information on integrating with the CPU’s Board Support Package (BSP). The libraries also include instructions for implementing this software with other manufacturer’s CPU board BSPs. Use with Industry Pack carriers from third-party board vendors is also supported.

    The IPSW-API-VXW library package offers support for Acromag carriers. Other carriers are compatible, but require some minor modifications.  Acromag uses a very innovative modular programming technique. This allows new carrier files to be created without affecting any of the complex IP module files or interrupt service routines.

    User-Friendly Licensing

    Acromag’s VxWorks software libraries are provided with a full site license. This allows anyone at your location to use this software without any additional charges.  Additionally, no run-time license is required either.

    The VxWorks software libraries include support for the full family of boards or modules, not just certain models unless otherwise noted.
