Conversion rates range from 100K to 500K samples/sec with resolutions of 12- and 16-bits. All have programmable gain inputs. FIFO memories allow high speed data acquisition without increasing processor overhead. All provide auto-calibration under software control making the data stable over the temperature range. The use of digital zero and span adjustments completely eliminate shifts due to vibration and temperature. All have digital I/O from eight to 24 lines and 12-bit analog output. The inputs can be configured for 16/32 single-ended or 8/16 differential lines. All contain DC/DC converters provide low noise power to the analog circuitry and allow 5V only operation.
