79G5 – PCle Multifunction I/O & Communications Board

North Atlantic Industries

Configured with up to three NAI intelligent I/O and communications function modules, the single-slot, half-size 79G5 PCIe multifunction I/O and communications board is ideally suited for high-channel density and combined multifunction I/O requirement systems. The 79G5 is an off-the-shelf solution that accelerates deployment of digital and I/O, position control and measurement/simulation and communication interface applications.

Adaptable Architecture

NAI’s Custom-On-Standard-Architecture™ (COSA®) offers a choice of over 40 intelligent I/O, communication, and Ethernet switch functions, providing the highest packaging density and greatest flexibility of any multifunction I/O board in the industry. Preexisting, fully tested functions can be combined quickly and easily in an unlimited number of ways. Each I/O function has dedicated processing, unburdening the  processor  from additional  data management overhead

Software Support Kit (SSK)

The 79G5 includes SSKs to support multiple operating systems. In addition, SSKs are supplied with source code and board-specific library I/O APIs to facilitate system integration.

Eliminate man-months of integration with a field-proven PCIe board from NAI.
