High-Resolution Analog Input Board for PCI
AD16-16(PCI)EV
* Specifications, color and design of the products are subject to
change without notice.
This product is PCI-compliant interface boards that convert
analog input signals to digital data (performing analog-to-digital
conversion). This product carries high-capacity buffer
memory for 16M data for analog input, allowing background
sampling to be performed in a variety of trigger conditions.
This product also has one analog output channel, four
channels for TTL level digital input, and four channels for TTL
level digital output.
This product is the high-precision type that performs A-D
conversion at a conversion speed of 10μ sec/ch and a
resolution of 16-bit.
Using the bundled API function library package
[API-PAC(W32)], you can create Windows application software
for this board in your favorite programming language
supporting Win32 API functions, such as Visual Basic or Visual
C++.
It can also collect data easily without a program when the data
logger software [C-LOGGER] stored on the attached CD-ROM
is used. With plug-ins for the dedicated libraries, the board
also supports MATLAB and LabVIEW.
This product is partly improved from the past analog E series; it is an
upward-compatible product. Basically, this product can therefore be used in the
same way as the analog E series. This product is different in specification from
the E series. The difference point is shown in “Differences between past analog
E and this product”.
Features
Resolution :16-bit, combination speed : 10μsec/ch
This product is the high-precision type that performs A-D
conversion at a conversion speed of 10μsec/ch and a
resolution of 16-bit.
The product has analog input 16ch, analog output 1ch, digital
input/output (TTL level: four each), and a counter (32-bit, TTL
level 1ch). In addition, the analog input can be set to
single-end input 16ch or differential input 8ch, while the counter
is commonly used as the digital input/output.
Equipped with high-capacity buffer memory for 16M data
and a variety of sampling control functions
FIFO or RING buffer memory for 16M data, allowing sampling
to be performed as a background task independent of the
processing power of the PC.
Capable of starting and stopping sampling not only by software
commands but depending on the strength of an analog signal
(via conversion data comparison) or by detection of a TTL level
signal (external trigger).
Sixteen single-ended channels or eight differential
channels (Analog input function)
These boards allow either single-ended or differential input
mode that is selected with on-board jumpers. The order of
channels subject to signal conversion can be preset in the
dedicated register. Using an optional unit, a board can
increase the maximum number of input channels (up to 32
channels) and perform simultaneous sampling.
Abundant optional units
Providing a variety of options available for extending the
functions, including buffer amplifier, simultaneous sampling,
insulation & current/thermocouple input, low pass filter, and
cables.
Software-based calibration function
Calibration of analog input/output can be all performed by
software. Apart from the adjustment information prepared
before shipment, additional adjustment information can be
stored according to the use environment.
Supported to the data logger software [C-LOGGER]
Supporting the data logger software [C-LOGGER] that enables
the graph display of recorded signal data, file saving, and
dynamic transfer to the spreadsheet software program “Excel”
Plug-ins for the dedicated libraries, the board also
supports MATLAB and LabVIEW.
We offer a dedicated library [ML-DAQ], which allows you to use
this product on MATLAB by the MathWorks as well as another
dedicated library [VI-DAQ], which allows you to use the product
on LabVIEW.
These dedicated libraries are available, free of charge
(downloadable), on our web site.
Mixed on-board channels for analog output and digital I/O
One channel for analog output, four channels for TTL level
digital input, and four channels for TTL level digital output
mixed on the board.

There are two analog input modes: the Single-ended input and

input connections by using flat cable or shield cable.

If the signal source contains over 100kHz signals, the signal

If the board and the signal source receive noise or the
distance between the board and the signal source is too long,
data may not be input properly.
An input analog signal should not exceed the maximum input
voltage (relate to the board analog ground). If it exceeds
the maximum voltage, the board may be damaged.
Connect all the unused analog input channels to analog
ground.

Differential Input
The following figure shows an example of flat cable connection.
Each signal source is connected to a [+] pin of analog input
channel and the signal common of this source to the [-] pin of
this input channel of CN1. In addition, the signal common
must be connected to the pin of the analog ground of CN1 by a

The following figure shows an example of 2-wire shielded cable

source is connected to a [+] pin of analog input channel and the

The input data would be uncertain if the analog ground is not

If the board and the signal source receive noise or the

data may not be input properly.
The input voltage from the [+] input or [-] input should not
exceed the maximum input voltage (based on the board
analog ground). If it exceeds the maximum voltage, the
board may be damaged.
Because the input data will be uncertain if the [+] pin or the [-]
pin of CN1 is not connected, all the unused input pins of CN1
should be connected to the analog ground, AGND.
Analog Output Signal Connection
This section shows how to connect the analog output signal by
using a flat cable or a shielded cable.
The following figure shows an example of flat cable connection.
Connect the signal source and ground to the CN1 analog

CAUTION
Do not short the output signals to analog ground, digital
