Data sheet (PDF)
The PCI-1780 is a general purpose multiple channel counter/timer card forthe PCI bus. It targets the AM9513 to implement the counter/timer function by CPLD. Plus, it provides eight 16-bit counter channels and 8 digital outputs and 8 digital inputs. Advantech has designed in owerful counter functions to fulfill your industrial or laboratory applications. Flexible Counter Modes The PCI-1780 features up to 12 programmable counter modes, to provide one shot output, PWM output, periodic interrupt output, time-delay output, and to measure the frequency and the pulse width. The PCI-1780 is an ideal solution for variant counter/timer applications. Special Shielded Cable for Noise Reduction The PCL-10168 shielded cable is specially designed for the PCI-1780 for reducing noise. Its wires are all twisted pairs, and the input signals and output signals are separately shielded, providing minimal cross talk between signals and the best protection against EMI/EMC problems. Board ID The PCI-1780 has a built-in DIP switch that helps define each card’s ID when multiple PCI-1780 cards have been installed on the same PC chassis. The board ID setting function is very useful when users build their system with multiple PCI-1780 cards. With correct Board ID settings, you can easily identify and access each card during hardware configuration and software programming. Plug-and-play Function The PCI-1780 is a Plug-and-Play device, which fully complies with PCI Specification Rev 2.2. During card installation, there is no need to set jumpers or DIP switches. Instead, all bus-related configurations such as base I/O address and interrupt are automatically done by the Plug-and-Play function.
