Specification was handed out in ECE 582 last quarter.
3 channels – dedicated output
3 channels – dedicated input
2 channels – configurable as either a dedicated input or output
Signals up to 5 MHz was desired – unit from Fall 2006 ~2kHz
Interface to host computer using USB – was accomplished
A very important part of this project is the software
system that accompanies it
Unit is not really usable without it!!!!
Configure the programmable lines
Configure the outputs and download the information need to the
unit for generation of the signals
Received data over the USB that can be displayed in a window
