Standard GPIO for connecting to external equipment
|Standard GPIO for connecting to external equipment||
The GPIO (general purpose digital input output) is intended for communication with external equipment. The GPIO is accessed from the software through register read and write commands. In this way, it is used for creating a link between the external equipment and the user’s software application. Real-time interaction with the data flow is also possible through the ADQ14 Development Kit. The GPIO signals are available in the User Logic area and can be used for interacting with the data and control in real-time.
The standard version of ADQ14 has GPIO as a software selectable function on the trigger and sync connectors. This means that the connectors are either used as trigger and sync, or as GPIO signals.
