The Astronics / EADS / Racal 1260-700 Prototyping I/O Plug-In Module is a prototyping plug-in with 88 digital I/O lines for the Adapt-a-Switch platform. The 1260-700 installs easily into the Adapt-a-Switch VXIbus Carrier, Model 1260-100, or the 1256 GPIB Switching Mainframe.

The 1260-700 uses a modular approach to achieve maximum flexibility. This prototyping module includes a connectorized interface section, which provides connection to either the VXIbus Carrier or the GPIB switching mainframe platform, in addition to 88 channels of bi- directional digital I/O, plus fused +5VDC power. When installed in a carrier, the 1260-700 has fused +12V and +24V available as well. Also included is a prototyping kit, which includes a prototyping card with 0.1 x 0.1 inch prototyping grid, a connector to the interface section, and blank panel hardware. The prototyping grid has a ground bus and two uncommitted buses, which may be jumpered to either an internal or external power supply.

The 1260-700, prototyping module, utilizes an open-architecture design. The pinout of the interface section and the layout of the "user-defined" section are provided so that custom plug-in boards may be designed. For example, a user-defined custom switch card, Analog to Digital Converter (ADC) card, or Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) card may be substituted for the prototyping area.
