The SX8122 timer is programmable via external resistors and a capacitor, similar to the legacy 555 analog timer but at 1 V, and is designed for on/off button debouncing, delayed start-up functions, and analog programmable sequencing and time-out in toys and remote control applications.
The 1x4 and larger models also require an additional 425-ms debouncing time.
This interface provides an I/O point abstraction layer with built-in support for the specific needs of analog and digital I/O such as gain control and debouncing.
The chip also provides 32-bit counter/timers with quadrature encoder inputs and debouncing filters, as well as six DMA channels for dedicated data paths to the PC processor for all I/O operations.
The NI-STC 2 chip delivers digital I/O and timing capabilities previously unavailable with plug-in DAQ devices, such as timed and correlated digital I/O, 32-bit counter/timers with quadrature encoder inputs and debouncing filters, as well as six DMA channels for dedicated data paths to the PC processor for all I/O operations.
Programmable input filters eliminate input noise, remove glitches and spikes and provide debouncing for digital switches and relays.
