125 MS/s,512 MByte (2 GByte),TTL,PCI-X,Digital I/O, M2i.7021

The M2i.70xx series of fast digital I/O boards offers a resolution between 1 bit and 64 bit with a maximum sampling rate of 125 MS/s (60 MS/s). All I/O lines of the card can be programmed for either input or output direction. The on-board memory of up to 2 GByte can be used completely for recording or replaying digital data. The internal standard synchronisation bus allows synchronisation of several cards of the M2i series. Therefore the M2i.70xx board can be used in combination with analog boards.

The PCI bus in the form that is used today was first introduced in 1995. The last years it has been the most common platform for PC based instrumentation boards. Nowadays PCI based systems are more and more superseded by PCI Express based systems. Its world-wide range of installations, especially in the consumer market, still makes it a platform with good value. Based on the PCI bus the PCI-X bus was specified for applications needing a higher data throughput. On the PCI-X bus there are bus frequencies up to 133 MHz and data bus widths up to 64 bit available. The M2i and M3i cards use the PCI-X bus with 66 MHz to gain a high data throughput. All PCI and PCI-X cards from Spectrum are compatible to PCI as well as to PCI-X with 33 MHz up to 133 MHz bus frequency.
