TPMC553 16/32 Channel 16 Bit DA Converter

32 16 bit analogue output channels. A 16 channel version is also available. The output voltage range is 0-5V, 0-10V, 0-10.8V, +/-5V, +/-10V or +/-10.8V and can be individually set per channel. The conversion time is typ. 10 µs and the DAC outputs are capable to drive a load of 2 KΩ, with a capacitance up to 4000 pF. A sequencer allows periodic updates of enabled channels with a sequence time range that extends from 10 µs to 167s.

The DA converter are available with front panel IO. The TPMC553 PMC module is factory calibrated. The calibration data is stored in the Identification-PROM.

A wide range of drivers is available: Linux, QNX, VxWorks and Windows. All drivers - except the Windows drivers - are supplied as C source code.
