Data Acquisition
Hercules III’s integrated data acquisition circuit includes
32 analog inputs with 16-bit A/D and 250KHz maximum
sample rate, four 12-bit analog outputs, 40 digital I/O
lines, four pulse with modulators, a watchdog timer, and
two counter/timers. It uses an enhanced 2048-sample
FIFO with programmable threshold for maximum
flexibility and data reliability.
The analog circuitry utilizes Diamond Systems’ industryleading autocalibration technology to calibrate its A/D and
D/A circuits. This means you get analog I/O performance
with the maximum possible accuracy over the full
operating temperature range of the product.
Software Support
Hercules III runs Linux, Windows Embedded Standard 7,
and Windows Embedded CE. Windows Embedded
Standard 7 and Linux Software Development Kits are
available with a bootable OS image and drivers.
Diamond’s Universal Driver software is also included. It
provides a C programming library for the integrated data
acquisition circuit, demo programs, and example code to
assist in application development.
