The PCI-TMC12A is a general purpose timer/counter card that supports the 5 V PCI bus and “Plug & Play” functionality to automatically obtain I/O resources from the BIOS. This card contains twelve 16-bit timers/counters (four 82C54 chips x 3 timers/counters), 16 TTL digital input channels and 16 TTL digital output channels. The two onboard clocks (8 M/1.6 M and 0.8 M/80 K) are jumper selectable and provide a high-resolution clock source for timers/counters. Counters/timers can be used for industrial and laboratory applications such as pulse/event/switch-toggle counting, frequency readings, elapsed time measurement, pulse-width measurement, PWM (pulse-width-modulated) output, and pulse (square wave) and rate generation, etc.
The PCI-TMC12A supports various OS versions, such as Linux, DOS, Windows 98/NT/2000 and 32/64-bit Windows 7/Vista/XP. DLL and Active X control together with various language sample programs based on Turbo C++, Borland C++, Microsoft C++, Visual C++, Borland Delphi, Borland C++ Builder, Visual Basic, C#.NET, Visual Basic.NET and LabVIEW are provided in order to help users quickly and easily develop their own applications.
