Summary
USB-1608G Series devices are low-cost, high-speed, analog and digital I/O USB devices. All of these devices offer up to eight DIFF or 16 SE analog inputs, up to eight digital I/O channels, two counter inputs, and one timer output.

The USB-1608GX-2AO standard and OEM version offers two, 16-bit analog output channels with DAC rates up to 500 kS/s.

Analog Input
USB-1608G Series devices provide 16-bit analog inputs that are software-selectable as 16 SE or eight DIFF inputs. These devices also support input ranges of ±10 V, ±5 V, ±2 V, and ±1 V that are software-selectable per channel.

Analog Output - (USB-1608GX-2AO only)
The USB-1608GX-2AO standard and OEM board has two 16-bit analog outputs that can be updated at a rate of 250 kS/s per channel; one output can be updated at a rate of 500 kS/s. The output range is fixed at ±10 V. The outputs default to 0 V when the host PC is shut down or suspended, or when a reset command is issued to the device.

Trigger Input
USB-1608G Series devices have an external digital trigger input. The trigger mode is software-selectable for edge- or level-sensitive mode.

You can configure edge-sensitive mode for either rising or falling edge. In level sensitive mode, you can configure for either high or low level. The default setting at power up is edge-sensitive, rising edge.

Retrigger Mode
In retrigger mode, you can set up repetitive analog input trigger events. The trigger is automatically re-armed after it is activated. Use software to set the A/D trigger count (the number of samples you want per trigger).

Digital I/O
Eight bidirectional digital I/O connections are included with USB-1608G Series devices. Each digital channel is individually configurable for input or output. The digital I/O terminals can detect the state of any TTL-level input. You can configure for pull-up (+5 V) or pull-down (0 V) through a jumper.

Counter Input
Each USB-1608G Series device includes two 32-bit event counters for counting TTL pulses. The counters accept frequency inputs of up to 20 MHz.

Timer Output
USB-1608G Series devices have a PWM timer output that can generate a pulse output with a programmable frequency in the range of 0.0149 Hz to 32 MHz. The timer output parameters are software-selectable.

External Clock I/O
USB-1608G Series devices provide one external clock input and one external clock output for the analog inputs. The USB-1608GX-2AO also has one external clock input and one external clock output for the analog outputs.

USB-1608G Series OEM Versions
OEM versions have board-only form factors with header connectors for OEM and embedded applications. All devices can be further customized to meet customer needs.

Included Software
TracerDAQ® TracerDAQ® is an out-of-the-box application that allows data to be generated, acquired, analyzed, displayed and exported within seconds of installing Measurement Computing data acquisition hardware. TracerDAQ offers four different data acquisition applications; a Strip Chart, an Oscilloscope, a Function Generator and a Rate Generator, all of which are accessed via a common, easy-to-use menu page.
InstaCal InstaCal installation, configuration, and test software in one package simplifies these important steps as you turn your PC into a measurement system. Installation detects new hardware and configures your computer and DAQ device. Test routines verify that all the board's features are operating, and will speed you to a quick resolution.
Universal Library Universal Library programming libraries for Windows® Visual Studio® programming languages, and others. A complete function library to simplify the configuration and operation of your measurement board. A single, universal set of functions operates all our products so you only have to learn to use our library once.

ULx for NI LabVIEW™ ULx for NI LabVIEW™ Advanced Driver for use with NI LabVIEW™ versions 2010-2016. Allows quick development of instrumentation, acquisition, and control applications with Measurement Computing hardware devices
Universal Library for Android Universal Library for Android Software API used to communicate with supported Measurement Computing DAQ devices over the Android™ 3.1 platform (API level 12) and later. The UL for Android includes example projects and detailed documentation to help users develop, install, and run apps on Android-based devices.

Additional Software
DAQami™ v3.0 DAQami™ v3.0 gives users an easy-to-use drag-and-drop interface that makes acquiring data and generating signals a quick and simple task. Users simply select a supported device, configure device channels and other options, and then select one or more displays to plot the data. When a DAQami acquisition is run, the program acquires and logs data from the selected channels, and plots the data on the displays for viewing.
DASYLab® 2016 Software DASYLab® 2016 Software lets you interactively develop PC-based data acquisition applications by simply attaching functional icons. DASYLab offers real-time analysis, control, and the ability to create custom graphical user interfaces (GUIs). What’s more, in contrast to other graphical programming environments, which can require weeks of training to master, DASYLab has a very short user-learning curve. Many applications can be configured in a few minutes, rather than days or weeks.

Linux® Support for MCC DAQ Products Linux® Support for MCC DAQ Products Many MCC products are supported under open-source Linux drivers. MCC works closely with the developer to provide professional driver support for many devices including most USB and PCI hardware.
MATLAB® Support for MCC Products MATLAB® Support for MCC Products – MATLAB® is a software environment for data acquisition, data analysis, and application development. MATLAB supports MCC hardware by using the MATLAB® Data Acquisition Toolbox™. MATLAB supports the data acquisition and analysis process along with interfacing with data acquisition devices and instruments, analyzing and visualizing the data. It also produces presentation-quality reports to share results with others.
TracerDAQ® Pro TracerDAQ® Pro provides four virtual instrument applications used to graphically display and store input data – and generate output signals – within minutes of installing Measurement Computing data acquisition hardware. The applications allow the user to customize appearance, store configurations for future use, save data to a file for export and – with the use of interactive hotspots – change settings while the application is running.
