Courtesy: Data TranslationData Translation's DT7816 is a real-time ARM-based data acquisition module designed for use in embedded applications. The module is a complete data acquisition system with 8 simultaneous 400kHz ADC inputs, 2 simultaneous 400kHz DAC outputs, plus digital functions of 16 digital I/O, counter/timer, tachometer, and measure counter. The ARM Cortex A-8 runs at 1GHz with 2GB on-board Flash memory, and has interfaces for USB host and client, plus Ethernet and SD card. The module is an open-source Linux platform that runs out-of-the-box with programs using the SDK Essentials package. A major advantage of the DT7816 is the ability to perform all I/O functions at the same time, i.e. simultaneous operation of all inputs and outputs. Since the A/D and D/A subsystems have independent clocks, the input and output functions can run separately or in unison. This allows continuous acquisition of data while output functions are carrying out their tasks. The DT7816 also comes preinstalled with Linux version 3.12 device drivers and Debian file system.
