I/O Extensions for the Simulink-Programmable FPGA 1)

Flexible Extension

The FPGA technology integrated in MicroAutoBox II addresses new use scenarios with varying I/O requirements. For greater flexibility, the I/O converters are outsourced to separate add-on modules, which can easily be integrated into the MicroAutoBox II variants 1401/1511/1514 and 1401/1513/1514 (only one module at a time). It is easy to change the modules later on.

Two I/O Modules Available

  • The DS1552 Multi-I/O Module is a universal I/O module that offers many powerful I/O converters and several interfaces. It can be used for tasks such as FPGA-based cylinder pressure indication.
  • The DS1553 AC Motor Control Module is an I/O module optimized for the control of various electric drives.
