With iC5000's IO module you can measure digital and analog signals as well as drive them. winIDEA can display these signals in the analyzer so that you can see the signals tracked by the IO module in correlation to your application's program/data trace and also profiler measurements .
- one system port
- 8 channels digital in
- 8 channels digital out
- 2 channels analog in
- 2 channels analog out
- power measurement
How do you configure winIDEA for the IO module (IOM) ?
First step is to physically connect the signal to one of the input ports, e.g. digital in port 3. Please make sure not to exceed the specified input and output range of the IOM signal interface. All details to the hardware physics can be found in the IOModule.pdf in the winIDEA documentation directory (in winIDEA menu "Help/Technical Notes").
Next configure the IOM in winIDEA in menu "Hardware/Options/I/O tab". Check the "Show" box in front of the signal you use, e.g. DIN3. You can also specify another name for the signal, e.g. "ButtonPress".
To display a graph of external signals in profiler's timeline view select "Show AUX".
This will open the AUX window that shows for every external signal a graph plus values.
