Deterministic Trigger I/O (DTIO) and NuMCU (MCU-based Architecture)

Neousys Technology Patented DTIO and NuMCU - An Innovative Approach to Implement Deterministic Algorithm and Create Unique Solutions

Deterministic Trigger I/O (DTIO) and NuMCU (MCU-based Architecture)Deterministic I/O (DIO) cards with change-of-state (COS) interrupt support are generally used for trigger/ strobe control in machine vision systems. However, the interrupt latency introduced in operating system increases the accurate timing control difficulty for trigger/ strobe signals.

Neousys' Deterministic Trigger I/O (or DTIO) and NuMCU are an MCU (Micro Control Unit)-based architecture technology. Together they solve trigger/ strobe timing issue by providing a deterministic timing correlation between input and output signals. By utilizing a standalone microprocessor with an optimized algorithm to collaborate with the platform and DIO circuit, users can configure output delay/ duration for multiple DO channels (e.g. strobe and camera trigger) to respond to a trigger signal on specific input channel (e.g. proximity sensor) at a resolution of 25 microseconds.

Neousys' Patented DTIO & NuMCU technology refine machine vision systems that require accurate interaction between lighting, camera, actuator and sensor devices allowing you to design or program specifically for your smart factory, IoT and M2M (machine-to-machine) communications by efficiently integrating MCU architecture.
