AD67 - I/O Extension for A12 and A15 (Product Discontinued)

The AD67 is an I/O extension card for the 6U VME SBCs A12 and A15. It is directly connected to the respective single-board computer - without being connected to the VME backplane. Its purpose is to provide physical access to several onboard functions of the above named SBCs. The AD67 provides connectors for USB, two PS/2 (keyboard/mouse), a 2.5" hard disk and three SA-Adapters.

Especially the SA-Adapters allow flexible configuration with all kinds of legacy serial I/O - also optically isolated - like RS232, RS422, RS485. The front panel comes with two user LEDs and two switches for reset/abort. The AD67, together with the respective SBC, takes two slots in a VME system (8 HP).
