96-Channel PCIe DIO Board
New CyberResearch® CYDIO 96HE is a high-density, high-drive, logic-level digital I/O board that takes advantage of the PCIe (PCI Express) bus. Digital outputs on this 96-channel board can source 15mA or sink 64mA, so additional buffering is usually not needed to drive external devices.
Because the PCIe bus is electrically identical to the PCI bus, the CYDIO 96HE digital I/O board from CyberResearch, Inc. comes with exactly the same software as the more traditional PCI-bus CYDIO 96HP board. Both boards come with the Universal Library, Universal Library for LabVIEW®, and other utilities for installation, calibration, and testing.
The CYDIO 96HE is divided into eight 8-bit and eight 4-bit ports. A handy feature of the board is the included on-board pull-up/pull-down resistor networks for each port. The default configuration is pull-up, but you can program for pull-down on a port-by-port basis. These fully programmable networks end the need for fussy installations of SIP (single in-line package) resistors.
