PCI Carrier Board

Wixom, Mich.— Acromag's new APC8620 PCI board interfaces up to five IndustryPack-type ANSI/VITA-4 modules to a PC. By installing analog, digital, and serial I/O modules on the APC8620 carrier card in any combination, users can efficiently develop custom I/O boards with high channel density. Users can also choose from more than 40 Acromag IP modules or hundreds available from third parties.

Wixom, Mich.— Acromag's new APC8620 PCI board interfaces up to five IndustryPack-type ANSI/VITA-4 modules to a PC.

Users can also choose from more than 40 Acromag IP modules or hundreds available from third parties. Object linking and embedding (OLE) software for Microsoft Windows 95/NT simplifies integrating Acromag's IP modules into data acquisition and control applications with easy object-oriented programming. The OLE controls are object-based software components that function as drivers to give easy access to IP module I/O data for use in OLE-compatible programs, such as Visual Basic, Visual C++, Borland Delphi, and many human-machine interface software products. These OLE controls handle many common functions, such as register reads, writes, and interrupts to eliminate many programming chores.
