The board APCIe-1711 is a fast multifunction and multichannel counter board for the PCI Express bus. The strengths of this board are its wide range of applications and high precision and reliability in harsh industrial environment. With this board you can realise many different applications on the same hardware base. The board is supplied with a pool of functions which provides the user with maximum efficiency yet minimum space and parts requirement. The functions are individually configured for each channel through the supplied software. The flexible programming facilities on this board allow many different user applications to be quickly and easily developed and reconfigured as further requirements arise. Thanks to the FPGA board structure, further counting applications can be realised through software adaptation. Contact us!
