PCI D/S, S/D, I/O & Comm Board

Five I/O and communication function module slots—
A variety of modules to choose from


NAI’s 76CS3 is a PCI/PCIe Multifunction I/O and Communication Board designed for applications requiring Digital-to-Synchro/Resolver (D/S) and Digital-to-LVDT/RVDT (DLV) stimulus output, as well as I/O and communication functions. This full-slot board contains five independent, function module slots. The board can be configured for 6 separate D/S channels, or for D/S in combination with I/O and communication modules. Using multiple DSPs, the enhanced motherboard enables higher processing power and dedicated pre-processing control for each module.

By eliminating the need for multiple, specialized, single-function boards, this unique design increases packaging density, saves enclosure slots, and reduces power consumption. The 76CS3, a low-power/high-performance board, is ideally suited for rugged defense, commercial aerospace, and industrial applications.

Preexisting, fully-tested functions can be quickly and easily combined in an unlimited number of ways. Each I/O function has dedicated processing, unburdening the system Single Board Computer (SBC) from unnecessary data management overhead.

The 76CS3 includes Software Support Kits (SSKs) for multiple operating systems. In addition, SSKs are supplied with source code and board-specific library I/O APIs to facilitate system integration.
