Contec ADA16-32/2(PCI)F - 32 Channel 16-bit Analog Input Board for PCI

32 16-Bit Analog Inputs, 2 16-Bit Analog Output, 4 Digital I/O Channels


Contec's AIO-163202F-PE is amulti-function PCI card with a highly precise analog I/O, a digital I/O, and a counter function. This product also has an event controller which is an integrated management of control signals hardware, and a bus master transfer function which performs transfer large-volume data at high-speed. These functions materialize high-speed and highly accurate computer measurement systems. The board has a full driver library (API-PAC(W32)), which supports Visual C# .Net, Visual Basic .Net, Visual C++. Also, the product supports no-programing data collection with a data logger soft (C-LOGGER), and supports MATLAB and LabVIEW with plug in of an exclusive library (free download).


  • Various sampling control with an event controller: As for analog input and analog output an outside clock signal synchronization whenever a counter value becomes the value that set analog input starts , It puts an event and the outside control signal input together freely and can perform control for the high synchronization that does not depend on software.
  • In analog input and each analog output, When It does not perform Bus maste transfer, it is equipped with an available buffer memory. It can perform AIO in the background that does not depend on software and the movement situation of a PC.
  • It can perform adjustment of analog input and analog output by software entirely. It can memorize the adjustment information that is different from adjustment information at the time of factory shipment and can have the adjustment information that accepted use environment.
  • To an outside control signal, a digital input signal of AIO, a counter input signal, It possess the digital filter which can prevent chattering.
  • It can realize a similar system with a desktop PC, or a note PC, ADA16-32/2(PCI)F and ADA16-32/2(CB)F which are the analog F series possess a similar function, and can almost just move the system assets which I built with a desktop PC in a note PC system.
  • Analog input and analog output can perform Bus master transfer individually or at the same time, and itI can forward large-capacity data between a PC and boards without hanging load to CPU. When It forward analog input data by Bus master transfer, It can forward the analog output that synchronized, the digital input, the digital output, count data to a clock signal of analog input at the same time. It can realize the system which secured synchronization between data by this function.
