Precision Analog Systems launched two analog output cards to complement its existing VME product line.

The PAS 9915/AO provides 32 12bit analog voltage output channels on a 6U card. The higher-power PAS 9912/AO provides eight 12bit analog output channels.

Eight, quad high speed voltage output DACs, with 10?s settling times provide the PAS 9915/AO with a total of 32 analog output channels. Voltage output signals on both cards are available on the a and c rows of the P2 connector.

For the PAS 9915/AO, four analog output ranges are available under program control, which allows the card's output voltage to be tailored to your application. Bipolar ranges from 10V to 5V and unipolar ranges from (0V to 10V) to (0V to 5V) are supported. All output ranges provide a minimum of 10mA of output current, double than what is typically offered on an output card.

The eight-channel high-power version, the PAS 9912/AO, provides 40mA output drive capability and is available in 25V and 15V versions. Eight high-power operational amplifiers buffer the DAC output signals and provide a gain of either 1.5 or 2.5, depending on ordering option.
