Aitech C430 - Multi Digital I/O VME Board

Up to 128 DIO Lines with 64 MOSFET Switches

Introduction

The Aitech C430 (Multi I/O 6U VME Slave board) provides up to 192 I/Os from three sets of digital I/O circuits. The first set has 32 differential I/O channels that can be configured to 64 TTL I/O channels under software control. The second set has 64 TTL channels that can be configured as input or output under software control. The third set has 8 High-side MOSFET switches, 8 Low-side MOSFET switches, and 6 sets of 8 isolated Low-side MOSFET switches with an independent return line.

The C430 provides maximum flexibility and ease of use allowing customization to specific requirements. All differential and TTL I/Os are protected against high transient voltage. The differential I/Os are RS-485 compliant and are compatible with TIA/EIA-422-B. The TTL I/Os used have high drive capability (-15mA IOH, 64mA IOL).

The C430 is compatible with VMEbus Specification. The VME interface support A24/D32 data transfers. 

VME Base address can be set in one of two methods:

  • Using the on board jumpers
  • Using geographical address pins on P2 connector

The C430 is available both in commercial and rugged configurations. The rugged board is available in both air-cooled and conduction-cooled version.

General

ExpansionThe C430 is a VME64x Slave board. The VME base address of the board is set to the setting of the on board jumpers when they are jumped. If
these “on board” jumpers are not used, the board automatically uses the setting of the geographical address setting of the VMEbus as the VME base address. The I/Os connections are through P2 and P0 User-defined pins.
ElectricalTotal power consumption of the C430 depends on its configuration and assembly options. Fully featured and configured to take all its
supply from the +5.0V power supply, the C430 power consumption is as follows:
+5 V (±5%) 0.5 A (typ), 1.0 A (max) (full load)
MechanicalAir-cooled: per ANSI/VITA 1-1994
