ICPDAS I-7188XB is a palm-size PAC that equips a DOS-like OS (MiniOS7). Its software development toolkit is C language compilers that can build 16-bit executable file (*.exe) running on an 80188/80186 CPU. There are two free compilers (Turbo C 2.0 and Turbo C++ 1.01), we suggest users to use the Turbo C++ 1.01.
By the multi-COM port feature, I-7188XB can integrate serial devices (for example: barcode reader, card reader, HMI) and use the few onboard I/O points to implement embedded applications.
Powerful and Versatile Controller
The ICPDAS I-7188XB is for industry applications and can be used to replace PC or PLC devices in harsh environments. The I-7188XB controller is designed for palm-size embedded systems that require high reliability, PC-compatibility, and compactness at a reasonable price.
The controllers can be integrated into an OEM product as a processor core component. By building your product around I-7188XB controller, you reduce the time from design to market introduction, cut development costs, minimize technical risks, and deliver a more reliable product.
Depending on the type of embedded firmware programs that are being developed, and which I/O Expansion Board, the I-7188XB can be used as a single versatile controller.
I/O Expansion Bus and Expansion Board
The ICPDAS uPAC I-7188XB supports an I/O expansion bus.The I/O expansion bus can be used to implement various I/O functions such as D/I, D/O, A/D, D/A, Timer/Counter, UART, flash memory, battery backup SRAM, AsicKey & other I/O functions. Nearly all kinds of I/O functions can be implemented by this bus.
The integrated modular design of the expansion board allows a fast, easy, and flexible way of upgrading our controller's capability.
