  • 4 onboard 8254 timer/counter chips
  • 12 independent 16-bit timers/counters
  • 12 external clock inputs
  • 12 external gate control inputs
  • 12 timer/counter output channels
  • 16-bit timer/counter can be cascaded to create 32/48-bit timer/counter
  • Gate input can be either an external signal or the output of a previous timer/counter channel
  • Four interrupt sources
  • Two internal clock sources
  • 16 TTL D/I channels and 16 TTL D/O channels
  • Drop-in replacement for PCI-TMC12 without any need for software/driver/wiring modification
  • More flexible interrupt mechanism
  • Hardware mechanism for the generation of two starting-clocks
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.
