Rugged Analog I/O Modules

Diamond Systems has been a leading supplier of embedded data acquisition I/O expansion boards since the initial release of the PC/104 standard in 1992. We are the leader in advanced data acquisition features in small form factor, embedded computing.

Our industry leading analog I/O offers the following benefits:
Highest performance analog in & analog out in a small form factor
More channels, more ranges, higher sample rate
Patented auto-calibration for the highest accuracy
Industry-leading Universal Driver 7.0 control panels & software
High performance DAQ integrated onto SBCs for cost, weight and size savings

PCIe MiniCard analog I/O module

Our extensive line of analog I/O modules currently includes PC/104, PCIe MiniCard and FeaturePak form-factor products, providing both A/D and D/A functions. Most of these products also include digital I/O and counter/timer features. A unique feature of Diamond analog I/O modules is our patented autocalibration technology, which can reduce analog measurement errors by up to 10 times relative to conventional designs.

Autocalibration for Enhanced Analog I/O Accuracy

Every analog circuit exhibits fluctuations in performance due to changes in temperature. Today's complex A/D circuits may exhibit errors that become significant in comparison to the signal being measured. The problem becomes even worse with products which are rated for operation over a wide temperature range of -40 to +85 degrees C.

Autocalibration solves these problems by enabling the board to be calibrated under software control at any time. No physical access is required, so the process can be done as often as desired, limiting any effects of temperature changes on the system. Additionally, Diamond's Universal Driver software provides a built-in autocalibration function call, which enables quick and easy calibration and ensures accurate measurements at all times.
