The DS5101 Digital Waveform Output Board can generate a multitude of signals at various frequencies, including incremental encoder signals and pulse-width modulation waveforms. Its main area of deployment is hardware-in-the-loop simulation in automotive applications, for example, it is used for simulating sensors or controlling actuators.
Digital pulse patterns are required in almost any control application. The demands placed on PWM resolution and flexibility are very high, especially in drives control. This quickly pushes ordinary timing I/O to its limits. Digital signals in automotive applications usually require a lower resolution, but the demands on flexibility can still be high, for example, for the simulation of crankshaft signals.
The DS5101 autonomously generates any TTL pulse patterns on up to 16 channels with high accuracy. With a time resolution of 25 ns, the DS5101 meets even the toughest requirements. The ability to change pulse widths in real time combined with various trigger and interrupt mechanisms give the DS5101 board unbeatable flexibility and programmability.
A library with standard pulse patterns is supplied. However, you can also program your own pulse patterns in an intuitive high-level language.
