Interfacing

For connection to a desktop PC, the most popular interfaces are Ethernet [LAN], Hi-speed USB and PCIe [PCI express]. For operating electronics, the selected interface board is connected to the suitable front-end electronics.

Operating Electronics for Ethernet [LAN] with PD-ETH01 Interface Board

The Ethernet Operating Electronics consists of an interface board with a frontend board directly mounted on top. The unit is connected to an external DC power supply. The PD-ETH01 is compatible to FEE boards in version FEE-xxx / EMB. 

The optional version PD-ETH01V1 /DP additionally provides real-time data preprocessing functionality.

Operating Electronics with Hi-Speed USB Interface PD-USB01

Hi-speed USB operating electronics, compatible with USB1.1, 2.0 and 3.0: stack of a frontend [FEE] and a USB interface.

 The FEE is mounted directly on top of the USB interface board, resulting in a self-powered USB configuration [DC power supply required]. Compatible with FEE boards in mechanical version FEE-xxx / EMB.

Operating Electronics based on a PCI Express Plug-in Interface Card PD-PCIe01

PCIe desktop Operating Electronics consisting of an external front-end [FEE] and a PC plug-in board. 
The PCIe interface board is installed into a PC [a free PCIe bus slot, minimum x1, is required]. For connection to the external FEE, a shielded 40-pin cable is used. Standard cable lengths are 2 and 5 m, other lengths are available. Compatible to Frontend Electronics in mechanical version FEE-xxx / STD. 


Customer DSP or Microcontroller Interfacing

To use tec5 frontend electronics and preamplifiers with a customer's proprietary processor or DSP board, only a few digital signals have to be handled. The interface description of the Front-End Electronics can be disclosed to interested customers. This allows to use an own processor hard- and software design while taking advantage of the superior analog performance of tec5 PDA preamplifiers and FEE electronics.



Additional interfaces are supported or may be custom designed by tec5.
