UIB-PC104 is a User Interface Board that enables the interaction
between humans and control modules connected to its main socket, through
input and output sources (widely known as human interfaces).
The design of a user interface affects the amount of
effort the user must expend to provide input for the system and to interpret
the output of the system, and how much effort it takes to learn how to do
this. The design of UIB-PC104 has been performed taken especial care of its
usability to provide users with an efficient and effective training tool.
The board has the following interfaces:
˙16x2 alphanumeric STN LCD
˙122x32 graphic STN LCD with
˙Twelve push buttons
It also includes a set of connectors dedicated to
multiple purposes and switches to select its operation mode.
UIB-PC104 is a perfect complement for control
modules (such as iCM4011) when facing to initial training and new
designs based on them.
In the case of iCM4011, users just need to plug the
modules onto the UIB-PC104 socket and start the training (UIB-PC104 CD
includes iCM4011 developing examples). Other modules may need some extra
signal conditioning stage.
Furthermore, UIB-PC104 has been designed following a
stackable architecture and complying with the dimensions and drills of
the PC/104 standard.
