MXP Wirewrap provides a large 14 x 21 hole prototyping area on an expansion card compatible with the myRIO Expansion Port (MXP). The MXP Wirewrap functions as an I/O breakout, with bus traces for GND, 3.3V, & 5V on either side of the prototyping area. The MXP Wirewrap's connector is also keyed to ensure correct connection with your NI myRIO.
The Digilent myProto accessory board for the NI myDAQ and NI myRIO brings all your myDAQ/myRIO's signals to breadboard connections where they can be easily accessed using simple jumper wires, and even adds several useful I/O devices.
The MSP connector on your myDAQ / myRIO provides power (+5 VDC and ±15 VDC) along with eight configurable digital I/O pins, two analog inputs, and two analog outputs. All of these signals are available and clearly labeled on the signal blocks at the top of the breadboard when plugged into the MSP connector. Referenece Manual
The Pmod CMPS2 is a digital compass module using Memsic's MMC34160PJ magnetometer. The local magnetic field strength can be measured in a ±16 Gauss range with a heading accuracy of 1° and up to 0.5 mG of resolution.
The Pmod VGA provides a VGA port to any board with Pmod connectivity. The VGA port can be used to drive standard displays such as televisions and monitors. The host board must be capable of driving a fast parallel data bus in order to properly drive a display with the Pmod VGA.
The PmodACL2 is a 3-axis MEMS accelerometer powered by the Analog Devices
ADXL362. By communicating with the chip via the SPI protocol, users may receive
up to 12 bits of resolution for each axis of acceleration.
The Digilent PmodALS demonstrates light-to-digital sensing through a single ambient light sensor. Digilent Engineers designed this Pmod around Texas Instrument's ADC081S021 analog-to-digital converter and Vishay Semiconductor's TEMT6000X01.
PmodKYPD - 16-Button Keypad is a peripheral module featuring a 16-button keypad. The keys are numbered in a hexadecimal fashion (0-9, A-F). It uses a standard 12-pin Pmod header that will indicate which row and which column has been pressed in the array of buttons.
The PmodMAXSONAR is a single-transducer ultrasonic range finder that uses the MaxBotix® LV-MaxSonar®-EZ1™. Users can measure how far away an object is with an accuracy within 1 inch to over 20 feet away. Information is sent in a variety of ways including UART, PWM, and analog signals.
The PmodSSD is a two-digit seven-segment display. Users can toggle through GPIO signals which digit is currently on at a rate of 50 Hz or greater to achieve persistence-of-vision to give the effect of both digits being lit up simultaneously.
The PmodSWT provides users with four slides switches for up to 16 different binary logic inputs to for the attached system board.
The PmodTMP2 is an ambient temperature sensor powered by the Analog Devices® ADT7420. Through the I2C interface, users may appreciate a resolution of 0.0078 °C through 16 bits of data.
Get your students quickly involved in building essential electronic circuits using myParts Kit supported by the Texas Instruments® University Program. The set of key components in the myParts Kit encourages hands-on experimentation with breadboards of basic circuitry, helping to make learning productive and enjoyable for beginners and more advanced students alike. Hobbyists and independent developers will also find the kit useful for investigating their design concepts. The kit comes with a collection of parts that are the building blocks of all electronics, including op-amps, an instrumentation amplifier, a comparator, voltage regulators, switching regulators, digital logic gates, timers, temperature sensors, data converters, transistors, resistors, capacitors, LEDs, switches, a wiring kit and more. myParts Kit enables your students to run experiments that help them understand real-life applications in areas such as power management, audio amplification, spinning motors, light detection, signal conditioning, data acquisition, and telecommunications to name a few.
MXP Breadboard for myRIO is a 300 tie breadboard with a 50 tie bus bar on an expansion card compatible with the myRIO Expansion Port (MXP). The MXP Breadboard functions as an I/O breakout, with digital and analog signals mapped to two headers on either side of the breadboard itself. The MXP Breadboard's connector is also keyed to ensure correct connection with your NI myRIO.
