DS6121 Multi-I/O Board

SCALEXIO I/O board for electric drive and power electronics control applications

With its application-specific I/O library and tailored channel set, the DS6121 Multi-I/O Board is ideally suited for dynamic electric drive and power electronics control applications.

Application Areas

The DS6121 supports a wide range of electric drives from small auxiliary motors to high-performance traction motors in various application areas, such as in-vehicle electrification and electric powertrains as well as industrial automation, e.g., highly dynamic test benches.

Key Benefits

The DS6121 Multi-I/O Board combines flexible interfaces for multiple position sensors, multichannel PWM generation for block and sine commutation, and analog channels for accurate analog measurement on a single board. Onboard I/O synchronization and I/O preprocessing enable highly dynamic control scenarios and provide outstanding real-time performance. A powerful I/O function library with easy access allows for quick prototyping of control applications. Furthermore, several e-drive control demo models are included to get you started.
