DS2002/DS2003 A/D Boards

High-resolution A/D boards

  • A/D boards with various resolutions, channel numbers and speeds
  • Up to 32 channels
  • Resolution up to 16 bit
  • Sample times 3.9 - 5.6 µs (16 bit)

Application Areas
A/D conversion is an element of most applications in rapid control prototyping and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation. In rapid control prototyping, sensors for pressure, temperature, or other signals provide analog voltages or currents. In HIL simulations, the electronic control unit provides analog voltages or currents that control the simulated actuators.

Key Benefits
The A/D boards provide various channel numbers, resolutions, and speeds for you to choose from. The table below gives you an initial overview. All boards can be configured from Simulink® using Real-Time Interface. You can select the voltage range and the resolution separately for each channel or A/D converter.
