BaseXIO Option | Spectrum

BaseXIO OptionThe BaseXIO option offers 8 asynchronous digital I/O lines on the base card. The direction can be selected by software in groups of four. Two of these lines can also be used as additional external trigger sources. This allows the building of complex trigger conjunctions with external gated triggers as well as AND/OR conjunction of multiple external trigger sources like, for example, the picture and row synchronisation of video signals. In addition one of the I/ O lines can be used as reference clock for the Timestamp counter.

Available signals

  • Asynchronous digital outputs (software controlled)
  • Asynchronous digital inputs (software controlled)
  • Additional trigger inputs for combined AND/OR trigger or for trigger gating
  • Timestamp reference clock
  • Additional timestamp digitial inputs
