The bc635PCIe timing module from our partner Microchip provides precise time and frequency functions to host computer and peripheral data acquisition systems.

Integration into custom applications is easy and efficient through the use of the full-featured standard software development kits (SDKs)/drivers included with the module, suitable to use with Windows, Linux, and Solaris.

Precise Time

The bc635PCIe provides precise time on request and fast response to host applications. The request for time is made using the included SDK software functions. Time is provided in binary or decimal form.

Multiple Time Codes

The bc635PCIe timing module has the widest time code input and output support available in any bus level timing card. Support is available for 30 different time codes: IRIG A, B, G, E,
IEEE 1344, NASA 36, XR3, and 2137 in AM and DCLS.

Measure Internal or External Events

The timing module allows you to measure the exact time up to the occurrence of three independent external events. Bus interrupts instantly notify the CPU that the measurements are made and waiting. Host application generated interrupts to the bc635PCIe card over the bus can be precisely time stamped for precise host application-based processes.

Flexible Rate Generation

The DDS on the bc635PCIe timing module can be programmed to generate rates up to 100MPPS or as little as once every 115 days. Rates are available as timing signal outputs or as interrupts on the bus. The rate adjustment resolution can be small as 1/32 Hz.
