The MTM-USBStem is a BrainStem link module and part of Acroname's Manufacturing Test Module (MTM) system. It allows a USB connection to a host PC which may be used for test direction, control, and data collection. It may also be used to load reflex programs to MTM or BrainStem modules for PC-free operation.
The MTM-USBStem is an important part of Acroname's Manufacturing Test Module (MTM) system. It features IO interfaces, including general purpose IO, 12-bit analog inputs (A2D/ADC), a 10-bit digital to analog converter (DAC), serial UART ports, a BrainStem I2C FM+ (1 Mbit/s) bus, and a peripheral I2C FM (400 kbit/s) bus.
With the upstream USB connection on its industry-standard edge connector, the MTM-USBStem is designed to allow even complex and dense test stations to connect to a PC, using just one cable and daisy-chaining as many MTM modules as needed. This makes for rapid and error-free station bring-up.
