The Si8380S-DC allows designers to evaluate the 8 channel, PLC Input isolator device with an SPI interface. The kit comes with an Si8380S daughtercard only, which requires the Si83xx SPI MB to operate. The system is controlled by the Skyworks Industrial I/O Control Panel, a Python-based desktop application that runs on a host PC and interfaces with the devices in the stack via USB. Each Si8380S daughtercard comes equipped with 8 input channels that meet IEC 61131-2 requirements for 24 V digital input types and can be connected to using pluggable terminal blocks.
The Si8380S-DC is part of the Si83xx-SPI-MB portfolio, where you can order the Si8380S-KIT that includes the motherboard, or you can order additional daughtercards to evaluate up to 4 devices at a time. Note that KIT options come with a motherboard and daughtercard, while the DC options come with the daughtercard only. Daughtercards require a motherboard to plug into for evaluation and use of the software tool.
