z482 Digital I/O Module

12-Pin Digital I/O PXIe Module




The z482 Digital I/O Module is a single-slot 3U PXIe with 12 channels of integrated pin electronics (PE) and per pin parametric measurement unit (PPMU) functions.

PE Functions

Each pin can perform PE functions of the driver, the comparator, and the active load, and DC levels for automated test equipment applications. There are high voltage drivers (up to 13.5V) on even-number pins.

PPMU Functions

Each pin can be configure as a voltage source/current monitor or current source/voltage monitor:

  • Drive-Current Clamp-Voltage (DICV)
  • Drive-Voltage Clamp-Current (DVCI)

MIPI Controller

z482’s MIPI controllers allow communication with MIPI RF Front End (RFFE) devices. If specified MIPI RFFE can define an interface between RFFE-capable devices, with one master device and up to 15 slaves on a single RFFE bus.

Vector Engine Functions

Allows user to generate or analyze user-defined patterns for each pin.


Signal Connection – Depending on the mode of operation (PE or PMU), there are three leads per pin:

  1. Force-High (FH)
  2. Low (L)
  3. Sense-High (SH)


  • DAQ style cable
  • Break-out board
