This board makes a great demonstration, test or educational tool to use with logic and protocol analyzers. It can be set to generate 46 types of signals through its row of header pins.
For classrooms, normally the teacher might not have a practical way to create a particular signal being discussed. This Simulator Board and and a logic analyzer can be used to demonstrate the signal output each and every time.
The simulated signal can be sent out with no self-defined development environment. The Simulator Board can help engineers or students to understand the signal decoding and specification of each bus. This can save a lot of time in development or studying.
Please see the user manual page below for an explanation of how to set the DIP switches to allow you to demonstrate any of the following signals, and on what pins the signals will be active:
- User Manual 1 — Up Counter, I2C, SPI, UART (RS232C/422/485), 1-Wire, HDQ, CAN 2.0B, PS/2, I2S, USB 1.1, Low Pin Count, SSI Interface, Microwire, LIN 2.1, Manchester, Miller, S/PDIF, SD2.0/SDIO, Digital Logic, Arithmetical Logic, MII, LCD1602, ModBus, 7-Segment LED, ST Bus, IRDA, DMX512, FlexRay 2.1A, LPC-SERIRQ, JTAG 2.0, DSA Interface, ST7669, LCD12864, PCM, MCU-51 Decode, NEC_PD6122, PM Bus 1.1, PSB Interface, SM Bus 2.0, DIGRF, AC97, SLE4442, CCIR656, PECI, 3-Wire, J-K Flip-Flop
The board measures 7 × 9.7 cm and is 2.5 cm tall.
