The DS-MPE-GPIO is a rugged, low cost 36-channel digital I/O PCIe MiniCard module that is ideal for digital I/O expansion in embedded and OEM applications.

An FPGA provides 36 buffered digital I/O lines that can be configured to operate in simple I/O mode in the form of 8-bit and 4-bit ports, or in counter/timer and PWM modes. Two ports are fixed digital I/O ports with programmable direction in 8-bit groups. One port can operate as either a 4-bit DIO or 4 counter/timers with 1 input and 1 output per counter. One port can operate as either 8 DIO or up to 8 pulse width modulators.

Extended temperature capability (-40°C to +85°C) enables the board to operate in environments with extreme temperature swings, such as vehicles or outdoor installations. In addition, the board may be custom-configured with 0-ohm resistors in place of jumper blocks for increased ruggedness in high-vibration environments.
