Eurotech today announced the DAQ-1274, an isolated digital input/output (I/O) module for embedded data acquisition and control applications in vehicular, aircraft, and telecommunications environments.  
The DAQ-1274 module conforms to the PC/104 form factor, which provides considerable flexibility and scalability when assembling an embedded computer system. The board can be stacked on top of other DAQ-1274 modules, as well as combined with other Eurotech CPU and Add-on modules. 
The DAQ-1274 offers 62 channels of digital I/O points designed for +28 VDC application usage. The standard configuration comes with 20 opto-isolator inputs and 20 solid-state relay outputs capable of switching AC or DC up to 300 mA, as well as 16 logic-level input/outputs and six input jumpers.  
Two 50-pin headers provide connections to two banks of 20 isolated I/O points each, that are arranged in pairs for use with twisted pair or ribbon cabling.  
Eurotech develop and market complete embedded solutions: Single Board Computers and add-on modules compliant with the PC/104, PC/104-Plus and CompactPCI market standards. 
Innovative technology and specific know-how allow Eurotech to provide OEM products for system integrators (ASES: Application-Specific Embedded Systems). Based on a PCx86 open architecture, these products guarantee a very short time-to-market by consistently reducing the interval between the starting idea and the finished product. Besides, they take in charge the whole problem of device implementation, leaving the integrator free to concentrate on the main project.  
PC architecture allows to select the processor’s performance (ranging from 386 to Pentium III) and to install any of the operating systems available on the market (Windows XP Embedded, CE-Net, Linux, QNX, VxWorks, DOS). Eurotech provides the CPU modules and the related Board Support Packages (BSP); the add-on modules come with device drivers that speed up the writing of the application software.  
Eurotech’s products are built using off-the–shelf components (COTS); nevertheless, they can be supplied in a rugged version, with features like tropicalization, extended temperature range, vibration resistance and so on, which ensure high reliability in harsh environments.  
Eurotech provides interesting applications in the field of intelligent transportation (ITS). We offer OEM solutions for vehicle location (AVL) and vehicle management (AVM), terminals for client assistance and information, while security is ensured by digital event recording (DVR). Specific interfaces can be implemented according to our customer’s requirements, including GPS/DGPS location devices, GSM/GPRS (vehicle WAN) and Wi-Fi 802.11a,b,g (vehicle LAN) radio communications, up to Bluetooth for peripheral devices.
