Acromag introduces Acropack PCIe-based I/O modules

May 12, 2016 - Acromag’s PCIe-based AcroPack series of general purpose I/O modules for embedded computing applications are an extended version of the mPCIe specification and feature a 100-pin connector to handle the I/O. The modules plug into connectors on AcroPack carriers to add analog or digital input and output or communication in any combination for embedded applications running on Linux, Windows or VxWorks operating systems. Acromag’s AcroPack PCIe carrier holds up to two mini-PCIe or AcroPack mezzanine modules.

Four AcroPack mezzanine models will offer 32 isolated digital input model AP440, 32 isolated digital output model AP445, 32 I/O channels with 0 to 60V model AP408, and four or eight UART ports RS232 model AP50x.

For integration of the AP modules with real time software application programs, Acromag offers C libraries for VxWorks and other operating systems. The libraries provide generic routines (source code included) to handle reads, writes, interrupts, and other functions. Demonstration programs enable the developer to exercise the I/O modules before attaching the routines to the application program. 

The COTS product line of AcroPacks are ROHS compliant and ideal for scientific development labs, military and aerospace applications, the defense industry, and automation applications.
