BOB Recommendation

Postby CL_MotoTech » Fri Aug 09, 2019 1:42 pm

I am using a UC300eth-5lpt with a MX3660 and a Gecko G540. I only have two inputs and three outputs left. As a result, I'd like to add an additional BOB. I don't foresee needing a ton more outputs/inputs, but having the room to grow is appealing.

I checked out a few different websites and I am struggled to come to a conclusion.

So if anybody has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.

If you are already using both "standard" ports on the 5LPT, then a CNC4PC C10 is probably what you want. I'm not aware of any other bi-directional breakout boards.

I am using ports 2 and 3 on the 5lpt, so that leaves the bi direction ports open. The price is right on the C10, so I think I'll order it up.

Thanks, gents.

note they are not bidirectional ports...

all ports are fixed

some are standard Ltp ports and some are ecp ports (with inputs on pins 2to9

Yeah, I checked out the documentation.

Looks like it will do what I need.
