E20-10 High-speed external input/output module with USB 2.0 interface

High-speed external input/output module with USB 2.0 interface
  • ADC: 14 bits / up to 10 MHz
  • Input channels: 4
  • Variety of synchronization modes
  • Digital input/output: 16/16
  • 2 channels DAC (optional)

Relatively inexpensive and easy-to-use high-speed 4-channel ADC module.

USB 2.0 interface and internal 8 Mbyte FIFO buffer provide high-speed continuous data acquisition at frequencies up to 10 MHz. The FPGA-based architecture with one ADC, a switch and input buffer amplifiers in serially interrogated channels completely eliminates switching interference; active low-pass filters improve the signal-to-noise ratio of each channel.

The advanced synchronization system with configurable ADC synchronization lines and the data acquisition start signal from external or internal sources allows to realize the internal and external synchronization and to екфтыьше the internal synchronization signals outward. This allows to create single- and multi-module systems that are synchronous relative to one of the modules or to an external synchronization source.

Software for Windows

  • lusbapi34.exe (filesize: 2 450 812 bytes, date: 09.02.2012)

    Lusbapi Library v.3.4 for Windows 98/Me/2000/XP/Vista/7. Self-extracting archive with the software for the following L-CARD USB devices:

    • E14-140 module (Rev. "A" and "B")
    • E14-440 module
    • E20-10 module (Rev. "A" and "B")
    • E-154 module

    The archive includes USB driver, library, and examples.

    Attention!!! This version of the library uses a new USB driver. Thus, when upgrading from older versions of Lusbapi to version 3.2 or higher, the end user should switch the USB module to work with the new driver via the "Device Manager".

  • lcomp.exe (filesize: 6 342 216 bytes, date: 12.05.2021)

    Beta version. LCOMP library for Windows XP/Vista/Win7/Win8/Win10 32 and 64-bit versions with drivers. The installer and drivers are digitally signed. The library is built on the basis of modern WDM-drivers rewritten on WDF. It includes the WDM driver itself for L-CARD hardware, the DLL library with source code, programming examples, electronic description, etc. The LCOMP library provides support for almost the entire range of products: PCI boards, USB modules. ISA support is excluded.

    The library includes “L-Graph I” software. L-Graph I supports the following devices: L-1450, L-761, L-780, L-783, L-791, E14-140, E-154 and E14-440. Files recorded by L-Graph I can also be read and processed using the demo-version of PowerGraph v.3.X.
