16 Channel Analog Voltage Output Module

The M395 is a 16 channel analog voltage ouput M-Module, designed for use in general test and measurement applications.

The M395 features 16 analog voltage outputs, integrated on the ANSI certified M-Module standard. The digital-to-analog converters have a resolution of 12- or 16-bit. The voltage outputs on the M395 have a software programmable common output range of 0 to +10V (uni-polar) or -10V to +10V (bi-polar). The hosting system has full control of the M395 by accessing its dual-ported memory. Each channel has its own conversion register and an output will be updated when a new value is written in the corresponding register.

The M395 is also available as a PCI, CompactPCI (3U and 6U) and VMEbus (3U and 6U) product.
