CompactPCI/PXI module is programmable

The CP387 is a single-width, 6U, CompactPCI/PXI module with up to 256 digital input/output channels. The CP387 baseboard provides 128 TTL level digital I/O channels. Additional expansion up to 128 digital channels is provided by four mezzanine-card sites. These sites can be populated with an assortment of I/O options such as isolated input, isolated output, relay output, ac-switch output, or differential I/O to extend the capability of the module. Data transfers to and from the CP387 are programmable and support 16- and 32-bit data words. The module contains flash memory that can be used to restore basic digital input and output configuration parameters on powerup.
