OEM diode array spectrometer electronic module
for OEM diode array spectrometers
The ASC-5216 is the smallest OEM electronics board Avantes offers. It can be used with the Sony (ILX511, ILX554B) and Toshiba (TCD-1304) CCD detectors. Featuring the same powerful 5126 Coldfire® processor as used in the AS-5216, it's equipped with a Hirose ST60-36p connector. It has 12 programmable IO ports (3 DI, 9 DO), 2 analog out ports and 2 analog in ports. One digital out port is used for controlling the flash rate of an external Xenon strobe (AvaLight-XE), one digital out port is used to control external TTL-shutter devices, one digital output is reserved for external control for flashing a laser source in LIBS applications. One digital in is used for external hardware triggering.
The ASC-5216 board can be synchronized with other ASC-5216 boards to control the simultaneous data sampling of multiple channels, all connected to USB2.0 high-speed interface.
On-board signal processing allows data reduction to speed up scan transfer time. Data reduction can be achieved by defining a start and stop pixel and On-Board Averaging. The board can be operated by the extensive AS-5216-DLL software development kit with many functions to control the electronics board and data sampling parameters.
