FP-DAQ1616 is a data acquisition I/O card integrating Diamond’s newest and fastest analog I/O technology and a PCI Express host interface.

This tiny board offers 16-bit or 12-bit A/D sampling at up to 2MHz, supported with an expanded 16K-sample FIFO for reliable data collection in any operating system. Analog output capability has been expanded to 16 16-bit channels with programmable output ranges. All analog I/O features are enhanced with our industry-leading autocalibration technology, featuring independent calibration factors for each input and output range to guarantee maximum accuracy across all operating modes and the entire operating temperature range.

Digital I/O features include seven 8-bit ports with both bit-wide and byte-wide direction control, two 32-bit up/down counter/timers with programmable input source and gate, and four 24-bit pulse-width modulation circuits with 0-100% duty cycle.
