Integrated Data Acquisition

Athena III includes a complete analog and digital data acquisition circuit integrated onto the board. The analog input circuit includes 16 single-ended / 8 differential channels with 16-bit resolution and programmable gain. The extremely high input impedance ensures accurate measurements, while the fault-protected input multiplexors provide protection from overvoltage conditions as well as live inputs during a power-off state. A 2048-sample FIFO with programmable threshold supports smooth interrupt-based sampling at any sample rate up to 200KHz.

The circuit also features 4 12-bit analog voltage outputs with programmable output ranges, 24 digital I/O lines with programmable direction, and 2 counter/timers which can be used for A/D timing, timer-driven interrupts, or general counting functions.

All data acquisition features are supported by our free, best-in-class Universal Driver 7.0 programming software which simplifies application development.
