SIS8864 MTCA 64 channel digital I/O board

The SIS8864 is a 64 channel (8 groups of 8 channels on two connectors) digital I/O board for slow control. A digitial pattern generator can be implemented in custom firmware. A Vivado project for your custom firmware designs can be generated and furnished on request.

The board is a monolithic -ready to run- alternative to MTCA FMC carrier boards with digital I/O FMCs.
