Introduction


Apex Embedded Systems delivers a higher standard in PC/104 products. Our PC/104 products are the result of customer feedback and relentless product improvement. We strive to offer products with second source compatibility and maximum life cycles. In addition, our products are ruggedized to tolerate wide environmental requirements such as temperature, vibration, external power supply noise and input voltage transients.

Our products have been used successfully by OEMs in military, aerospace, scientific and communication applications where Commercial-Off-The-shelf (COTs) solutions are required.

All products are designed and manufactured in the United States, built to meet or exceed operating temperatures of -40C to +85C, tantalum free specifically for aerospace applications, and use only polarized connectors. All products have had at least three years of testing and customer feedback.

Our PC/104 products have drop-in compatibility modes thus offering a multi-source hardware solution as well as compatibility with existing software drivers and applications. Superset functionality offers additional time saving solutions.

Apex Embedded Systems, with headquarters located in Monona, Wisconsin, is a leading manufacture of PC/104 boards as well as other deeply embedded solutions. Complementary engineering services enable product customization to solve unique application challenges.

Time saving online purchasing is available at our website.

 

Product Line Overview


STX104 - Designed for operating at temperature extremes from -40C to 85C, the STX104 16-bit PC/104 data acquisition (DAQ) card features a huge one mega-sample buffer to eliminate interrupt latency issues and enable 200,000-samples per second data transient recording for Linux, Windows, DOS and deeply embedded applications.

The STX104 provides 16 channel single-ended or 8 channel true differential inputs. It has low-drift and low-noise analog inputs with broad programmable input ranges. In addition, the STX104 PC/104 card provides 2-channels of analog output with 16-bit resolution. Feature summary:

  • Continuous high speed data sampling up to 200,000 samples per second without data loss
  • Analog Input Ranges: 10V, 5V, 2.5V, 1.25V, 0-10V, 0-5V, 0-2.5V, 0-1.25V
  • 16 channel single-ended or 8 channel true differential analog inputs
  • Low noise analog inputs
  • Interrupt generation by sample, burst or every 512-samples
  • Two analog output (DAC) channels
  • Analog Output Ranges: 10V, 5V, 0-5V or 0-10V
  • 16-bit data transfers effectively double PC/104 data bandwidth
  • LED status indicating read/write cycles
  • Hardware moving average filter provides additional signal noise reduction
  • Single +5V supply operation
  • Linux driver available
