Apr 20, 2017 Multi I/O Board for Railways

Multiple I/O Functions and Status Indication

The F405 provides multiple I/O functions especially for Automatic Train Operation (ATO). All digital inputs can be operated with common GND or common positive voltage in the range of -110 V to +110 V. The pulse counter inputs can be used to connect a speed sensor and provide frequency and distance measurement as well as direction, standstill and rolling detection as built-in functions which are all integrated in the FPGA.

The board's high-side switching digital outputs support voltages in the range from 24 V to 110 V. The analog outputs provide the output value as voltage or as current. With their programmable cycle and pulse length, the PWM outputs are suitable for, e.g., engine power control.

The status of all inputs and outputs as well as the indication of OK and reset is shown via LEDs on the front panel.

Feb 20, 2017 Webinar: Virtualization in Harsh Environments – Benefits for Multi-Functional Applications

Designers of today’s transportation solutions face a number of challenges. They need to handle growing functionality, increasing amounts of data to handle, limited onboard space, and harsh conditions. One major consequence is the challenge of installing and maintaining multiple systems throughout a train or aircraft to handle all these growing tasks.
