The 40-220A series of breadboard modules allow the user to construct their own circuit in situations where a suitable PXI module is not available. For example when it is required to integrate a non-switching function into a PXI chassis. Typical applications include: Creating custom circuitry that can be housed in on a 3U board, or to build special –one-off” switching modules. 

Two choices of output drive are available: TTL for interacting with external logic and Open Collector Transistor for operating external devices with voltages to 50VDC and current to 500mA. 

Writing and reading can be done at bit, byte or word level to simplify programming effort. Applications include generating control signals, stimulus and sensing status from digital devices. 

We can construct and test breadboard circuits your exact specifications, please contact sales office to discuss your application in detail.

Note: This module supersedes the 40-220-001.
