The I-7188 series is a palm-size PAC designed to work in harsh environment. It has a CPU, SRAM, Flash and several RS-232, RS-485 ports. With a DOS-like OS (MiniOS7) and a developed fi rmware running inside, the I-7188 can act like a small PC.
For the hardware expansion, it supports an I/O expansion bus to implement various I/O functions such as D/I, D/O, A/D, D/A, Timer/Counter, UART, fl ash memory, etc. Customers can develop their own I/O expansion boards or choose one of 50 available boards that ICP DAS has developed.
For the firmware developing, a 16-bit C compiler for 80188/80186 CPU and C language programming knowledge are needed. To shorten the developing time, there are many demo programs for reference. And for industrial applications, a Modbus library and CAN bus library are provided to ease the developing.
