The NI PXI-6508 is a 96-bit parallel digital I/O module. It uses four 24-bit programmable peripheral interfaces (PPIs). Each PPI can be further divided into three 8-bit ports. The NI PXI-6508 is very flexible when interfacing to peripherals or other computers. The module can operate in either a unidirectional or bidirectional mode and handshake with peripheral equipment.
- 96 static digital I/O lines (5 V/TTL) in 8-bit ports
- Unidirectional and bidirectional I/O
- Known power-up states
- 2-wire handshake capability
- NI-DAQ driver simplifies configuration and measurements
