Montreal, (PRWEB) May 14, 2005
Goal Semiconductor today unveiled the HVDAC DevKit (UVK-HVDAC200-4), a plug and play development and evaluation system for the HVDAC200-4 quad, high voltage, 9-bit, serially configurable voltage/current D/A converter with programmable outputs of up to 200V.
The HVDAC DevKit provides a complete and comprehensive platform for evaluation and prototype development using the HVDAC 200, shortening time to market for applications requiring high voltage control such as electro-static MEMs devices, piezoelectric transducers, high voltage bias generation, test and scientific equipment, etc.
The HVDAC DevKit ships with a Windows®-based demo program that allows users to explore the full functional range of the HVDAC 200 device by connecting the devkit to a PC. The devboard features: A Goal VERSA MIX 8051 microcontroller, an onboard voltage reference, 2 adjustment potentiometers for the HVDAC200-4 reference setting, over-temperature and temperature-sensor-threshold adjustment, terminal block for HVDAC200-4 outputs, high voltage supply input (to be provided by the user), a PLCC-44 socket for the HVDAC200-4 device, a comprehensive set of configuration jumpers and locations for external load resistors.
The onboard Goal VERSA MIX 8051-based MCU is used for communication with the PC-based demo software and to control the HVDAC 200.
The UVK-HVDAC200-4 development kit ships complete with:
DB-HVDAC 200-4 development board
CD-ROM with relevant user guides
All source code for programs that run on the PC and the VERSA MIX 8051
Serial cable and power supply
The kit also includes an 8051-based development system (ships with compiler/debugger) that can be used to develop custom programs for high voltage control.
The UVK-HVDAC200-4 is available for US $ 250.
