Contec AO-1616L-LPE - 16 Channel 16-bit Analog Output Board for Low Profile PCIe

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


Contec's AO-1616L-LPE is a multi-function interface board of the PCI Express bus conformity that carried digital input and output (LVTTL level, for each 4 points) and counter (32bit, 1ch) as well as sixteen 16 bit analog outputs. It supports a Low Profile size slot and a standard size slot by changing an attached bracket. 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).


  • Has analog output (10uSec, 16-bit, 16 channels), analog output control signal (LVTTL level 3 channels), digital I/O (each 4 channels for LVTTL level), counter (32-bit, LVTTL level 1 channel).
  • You can select from software, an external trigger to control the start of sampling. You can select from completion of sampling for a specified number of sessions, an external trigger or software to control forcibly the end of sampling. The sampling cycle can be selected from the internal clock or an external clock.
  • To adjust output voltage of all channels to 0V when the power supply is turned on can lower the unstable voltage and prevent the device connected from fault and malfunctioning when the D/A converter starts.
  • The block contains buffer memory (1K data) that can be used in the FIFO or RING format. This allows for background analog output that does not depend on the operation status of the software or PC.
  • A digital filter is included to prevent misdetection due to chattering on the control signal (external trigger input signal, sampling clock input signal, etc.), digital input signal and counter input signal(except from external clock input signal and couter gate signal).
