Matrox Radient eV-CXP connectors and signal names



This section serves as a reference to match Matrox Radient eV-CXP's connectors and auxiliary signals with MIL information, such as MIL auxiliary signal numbers. To set/inquire all the settings for this board's auxiliary signals (for example, signal routing and timer settings), use MdigControl() / MdigInquire(), respectively.

On Matrox Radient eV-CXP, the auxiliary signals are acquisition path independent. Any digitizer allocated on the board (M_DEV0 through M_DEV3) can access any of the auxiliary signals.

Auxiliary I/O signals can have one or more functionalities (for example, trigger input, timer output, or user output, depending on the signal). Their possible functionalities are described in their description in the pinout table below. Note that, unlike some other Matrox frame grabbers, there is no limit to the number of events that can be triggered simultaneously using the auxiliary input signals, nor is there a restriction on which auxiliary signal can be used to trigger the event.

Only those auxiliary signals that have matching MIL information are included in this section. For information on internal connectors and a comprehensive list of all available input and output signals, refer to the board's installation and hardware reference manual.

Board connectors

The Matrox Radient eV-CXP board and cable adapter brackets provide several interface connectors. On the main bracket there are four CXP connectors. On the mDP-to-HD15 adapter cable (previously referred to as MiniDP-to-DBHD-15), which connects to the main bracket, there is one external auxiliary I/O connector. On the cable adapter brackets there are four external auxiliary I/O connectors, one of which is unused.

Only the following connectors have auxiliary signals with matching MIL information.

Description

External auxiliary I/O connector

HD-15 1 (0, 1, 2 and 3)

The external auxiliary I/O connectors are high-density D-subminiature 15-pin male connectors. They are used to transmit/receive auxiliary signals.

External auxiliary I/O connector 0 is located on the mDP-to-HD15 adapter cable, and external auxiliary I/O connectors 1, 2 and 3 are located on the cable adapter brackets.

1 Previously referred to as DBHD-15, but more accurately known as DE-15.
