GE Intelligent Platforms introduced the VME-6500 6U VME Multifunction I/O Board. The VME-6500 module features eight analog input channels, eight analog output channels, 16 digital input channels and 16 digital output channels. Analog inputs are software-programmable and analog outputs feature programmable voltage and current rates. Digital input channels are capable of multiple voltages and current ranges, and feature programmable input thresholds and de-bounce times. Digital outputs support high voltage and current drivers, and are protected for short circuit, over current and over temperature conditions.
