Industrial digital output software expansion for STM32Cube

ソフトウェア入手 データブリーフのダウンロード



The X-CUBE-OUT8 expansion software package for STM32Cube runs on the STM32 microcontroller and includes a driver to control the IPS160HF and/or the IPS161HF (single high-side switches for industrial safety compliant systems).

The software provides an affordable and easy-to-use solution for the development of 2 A (X-NUCLEO-OUT08A1) or 0.5 A (X-NUCLEO-OUT10A1) digital output modules, letting you easily evaluate the driving and diagnostic capabilities of IPS160HF and IPS161HF with industrial loads.

The expansion is built on STM32Cube software technology to ease portability across different STM32 microcontrollers.

The software comes with an example implementation of a single channel driver running on the X-NUCLEO-OUT08A1 or X-NUCLEO-OUT10A1 expansion board connected to a NUCLEO-F401RE or NUCLEO-G431RB development board.

You can also evaluate a dual channel digital output module by stacking any combination of X-NUCLEO-OUT08A1 and/or X-NUCLEO-OUT10A1 with shared or independent supply rail and independent loads.

When two X-NUCLEO-OUT08A1 expansion boards are stacked and connected so that the output of the first board supplies the second, the software allows you to evaluate IPS160HF performance in a 2 A digital output module, also by using the additional signals OUT_FB and Nch_DRV.

Similarly, IPS161HF performance can be evaluated for a 0.5 A safety digital output module when two X-NUCLEO-OUT10A1 expansion boards are stacked.

When two expansion boards are stacked, the configuration resistors between signals and Arduino connectors must be properly set between default and alternate positions to guarantee the desired control of the hardware.
