Contec DA16-16(LPCI)L - 16 Channel 16-bit Analog Output Board for Low Profile PCI

16 16-Bit Analog Outputs, 8 Digital I/O Channels


Contec's DA16-16(LPCI)L is a PCI bus compatible interface board with high-precision analog output(16 bit, 16 ch), digital input and output channels (4 channels each), and a 32-bit counter(1 channel). 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).


  • Rich set of basic functions: Compact system providing high-precision analog outputs. DA16-16(LPCI)L has control signals (3 points) for analog output (16bits, 16ch), analog output. Digital inputs (four channels), digital outputs (four channels), and a counter (32-bit one channel).
  • Substantial control functions: Capable of analog output in either time-based mode or external-signal synchronous mode.
  • Filter function facilitating external signal connection: Digital filters provided for external control analog I/O signals, preventing chattering.
  • Buffer memory: The analog outputs each have their own buffer memory. You can also perform analog output in the background, independent from software or the condition of PC.
  • Software-based calibration: Setting and calibrating the analog output can be performed completely by software. No tricky jumper settings are required. You can also set your own calibration data in place of the default data set at the factory and use different calibration data depending on the operating conditions.
  • Exchangeable low-profile and standard PCI slots: Support for both of low-profile and standard PCI slots (interchangeable with a bundled bracket).
