The Analog Breakout board was manufactured by Diversified Systems, to be designed for use within the 2009-10 FIRST Robotics Competition. Look to Chapter 3 of the control system manual. (the description below is an excerpt from the Database linked above)
The Analog Breakout is designed to make interfacing with the NI 9201 analog input module easier for FIRST teams. It adapts the DB25 interface to the familiar three row 0.1 pin field and provides a 5V rail to power sensors. The included plastic shroud provides an easy way to lock the connectors.
This part has been manufactured by Total Electronics in Logansport, Indiana. This is similar to the old Analog Breakout made in 2008 by Diversified Systems. However, this part is supported under a 30-day warranty while the 2008 version is not. This is the reason why this product is more expensive and listed separately from the 2008 Analog Breakout.
- 5V/3A power supply for providing power to analog sensors
- Wide-range power input for tolerating battery voltage variations
- Jumper to optionally connect battery voltage to AI8 for sensing battery/power input status
- Standard 3-pin PWM cable interface (5V, ground and analog input) for sensors with locking feature built into the plastic shroud
- DB25 connector with screw holes for securely mounting to an NI 9201 analog input module
- This unit includes 8 analog inputs with 12-bit resolutions. It has a +/- 10 V input range.
- The Analog Breakout plugs into the analog input module so that users can plug in with hobby-style connectors. This board takes a 12V input via a WAGO connector and has a 1A 5V switching power supply.
- Port #7 can be configured to monitor battery voltage.
