The Si8380S-KIT allows designers to evaluate the 8 channel, PLC Input isolator device with an SPI interface. The kit comes with an Si8380S daughtercard, an Si83xx SPI Motherboard, which supports up to 4 pluggable daughtercards in a stack configuration, as well as a micro-USB cable and 24 VDC wall wart. 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-KIT is part of the Si83xx-SPI-MB portfolio, where 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.
