I/O Extensions for the Simulink®-Programmable FPGA1) of MicroAutoBox III

Flexible Extension

The FPGA technology integrated in MicroAutoBox III addresses use scenarios with varying I/O requirements  and/or very high requirements on fast turnaround times below 20µs. For greater flexibility, the I/O converters are outsourced to separate add-on modules, which can easily be integrated into the MicroAutoBox III variants 1403/1511/1514 and 1403/1513/1514 (only one module at a time). It is easy to change the modules later on. 

Three Available I/O Modules

The DS1552 Multi-I/O Module is a universal I/O module that offers many powerful I/O converters and several interfaces. For example, it can be used to develop new, very fast control loops for active noise cancellation.

The DS1553 AC Motor Control Module is an I/O module with I/O optimized for controlling various electric drives.

The DS1554 Engine Control I/O Module is an I/O module tailored for the advanced control of combustion engines. It allows for control interventions even during an active combustion cycle.
