This page is the home of XYCOM analog support. This consists of the following components :


These components previously resided in epics/base.

Hardware Supported

The module can drive the following types of hardware: XYCOM 566

VME Configuration

Since module_types.h is not support by EPICS 3.14, a config command is provided.

    xy566SEConfig(ncards, nchannels, base, memory)
    xy566DIConfig(ncards, nchannels, base, memory)
    xy566DILConfig(ncards, nchannels, base, memory, vector)
    xy566WFConfig(ncards, nchannels, base, memory, armaddr)
    ncards - number of cards of this type. Defaults are (4,4,6,4)
    nchannels - number of channels. Defaults are (32,16,16,1)
    base - the VME shortaddress for the first card.
           The defaults are (0x6000,0x7000,0xe000,0x9000)
    memory - The VME memory address for the first card.
           The defaults are (0x000000,0x040000,0x0c0000,0x080000)
    vector - The interrupt vector for the first card.
           The default is 0xf8
    armaddr - arm address for the first card. The default is 0x5400.

NOTE: In release 1-4, the vector was configured via xy566WFConfig rather than xy566DILConfig. This is fixed in release 1-5
