Apex Embedded Systems LLC Releases Updated Tracer 48-Channel Digital I/O PC/104 Module with True 5V Digital I/O

MONONA, Wis., Aug. 1, 2018 – Apex Embedded Systems LLC and established leader in manufacturing PC/104 products, has launched an updated revision to its already successful Tracer digital I/O card greatly extending product life cycle.   The Tracer is a Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) solution used in military, aerospace and industrial applications.   The Tracer Is available now at Apex Embedded Systems’ newly launched site (https://www.apexembeddedsystems.com).

In a low voltage digital world, many 5V load devices still exist such as relays, solid state relays and LEDs. These devices require a full 5V swing which the Tracer seamlessly provides, especially for complete turn-off for low side driven devices. The full 5V swing allows interface to CMOS electronics that do not support LVTTL output ranges. The newly refreshed TRACER is available in three I/O range flavors:  safe 3.3V only I/O, full 5 volt I/O and any voltage I/O range down to 1.85V is possible (contact Apex for details).
