Access I/O Products has developed its fastest USB/104 digital I/O unit, Model USB-DIO-16H, which features 16 high-speed buffered digital inputs or digital outputs at continuous, sustained streaming speeds up to 16MBps for fast, unlimited waveform length.

The module is capable of 80MBps bursts with handshaking signals for synchronizing communications plus an additional 18 bits of general purpose digital I/O. The USB-DIO-16H is a port-powered high-speed USB 2.0 device and offers hot swapping functionality for quick connect/disconnect whenever you need additional I/O on your USB port.

The USB-DIO-16H was designed to be used in rugged industrial environments but is small enough to fit nicely onto any desk or testing station. The board measures 90.17 x 95.88mm and ships inside a steel powder-coated enclosure with an anti-skid bottom. A DIN rail mounting provision is available for installation in industrial environments.

In addition, the device can be integrated into any PC/104, PCI-104 or PCI/104-Express stack by connecting it to a USB 2.0 port usually included on-board with embedded CPU form factors such as EBX, EPIC, and PC/104, a key feature since many newer CPU chipsets do not support ISA and have plenty of USB ports.

The USB-DIO-16H is supported for use in most OS and includes a free Linux (including Mac OS X) and Windows 98/Me/NT/2000/XP/2003-compatible software package.

The USB-DIO-16H is available starting at $329, depending on model. Delivery is stock to two weeks ARO.
