Fast D/A Boards
- D/A boards with various resolutions, channel numbers, and speeds
- Up to 32 channels
- Resolution up to 16 bit
- Minimum settling time of 1.6 µs
D/A conversion is required by many rapid control prototyping applications to provide the control signal for actuators. In the other direction, in hardware-in-the-loop applications, sensors that provide analog signals have to be simulated.
The D/A boards provide various channel numbers, resolutions, and speeds for you to choose from. The table below gives you an initial overview. All three boards can be configured from Simulink® with Real-Time Interface. You can select the voltage range for each channel individually.
Comparing All Three Boards
|Board||Channels||Resolution||Settling Time 1)|
|DS2101 D/A Board||5 out||12 bit||3 µs|
|DS2102 High-Resolution D/A Board||6 out||16 bit||1.6 µs|
|DS2103 Multi-Channel D/A Board||32 out||14 bit||10 µs|
