Provides the full functionality of the 8/8/8 I/O board in a small DIP-36 package that is plugged into your own board. If you want the 8/8/8 functionality but space is an issue, or you are building a number of units and want to eliminate wiring between boards, this is the way to go.

You can create a smaller system by integrating custom electronics into your PCB, and by only using connectors for the wiring required in your system. Eliminating or reducing wiring also helps create a much more reliable system.

The 1010 - PhidgetInterfaceKit allows you to connect devices to any of 8 analog inputs, 8 digital inputs and 8 digital outputs. It provides a generic, convenient way to interface your PC with various devices.

Warning

warning
The PhidgetInterfaceKit 8/8/8 Mini-Format is intended for OEMs and system integrators.

In order to use the 1010, you must be comfortable with designing your own circuit. You will need to understand the signals coming from and going to the 1010.

If you are not familiar with Phidgets, we recommend purchasing a 1018 to familiarize yourself with Phidget concepts before attempting to design the 1010 into your system.

Getting Started


Welcome to the 1010 user guide! In order to get started, make sure you have the following hardware on hand:


  • 1010 Phidget InterfaceKit
  • USB cable and computer
  • breadboard/prototyping board
  • something to use with the 1010 (e.g. LEDs, switches, analog sensors, etc.)



Next, you will need to connect the pieces:


1010 0 Connecting The Hardware.jpg


  1. Plug the 1010 into the prototyping board.
  2. Connect any/all test hardware to the 1010. View the pinout in the technical section for help.
  3. Connect the 1010 to the computer using the USB cable.




Now that you have everything together, let's start using the 1010!




Using the 1010


Phidget Control Panel


In order to demonstrate the functionality of the 1010, the Phidget Control Panel running on a Windows machine will be used.



The Phidget Control Panel is available for use on both macOS and Windows machines.


Windows


To open the Phidget Control Panel on Windows, find the Ph.jpg icon in the taskbar. If it is not there, open up the start menu and search for Phidget Control Panel


Windows PhidgetTaskbar.PNG


macOS


To open the Phidget Control Panel on macOS, open Finder and navigate to the Phidget Control Panel in the Applications list. Double click on the Ph.jpg icon to bring up the Phidget Control Panel.



For more information, take a look at the getting started guide for your operating system:




Linux users can follow the getting started with Linux guide and continue reading here for more information about the 1010.


First Look


After plugging the 1010 into your computer and opening the Phidget Control Panel, you will see something like this:


1010 Panel.jpg



The Phidget Control Panel will list all connected Phidgets and associated objects, as well as the following information:


  • Serial number: allows you to differentiate between similar Phidgets.
  • Channel: allows you to differentiate between similar objects on a Phidget.
  • Version number: corresponds to the firmware version your Phidget is running. If your Phidget is listed in red, your firmware is out of date. Update the firmware by double-clicking the entry.



The Phidget Control Panel can also be used to test your device. Double-clicking on an object will open an example.


Voltage Input


Double-click on a Voltage Input object in order to run the example:


1010 1018 1019 VoltageInputSensor Example.jpg



General information about the selected object will be displayed at the top of the window. You can also experiment with the following functionality:


  • Modify the change trigger and/or data interval value by dragging the sliders. For more information on these settings, see the data interval/change trigger page.
  • If you have an analog sensor connected that you bought from us, you can select it from the Sensor Type drop-down menu. The example will then convert the voltage into a more meaningful value based on your sensor, with units included, and display it beside the Sensor Value label. Converting voltage to a Sensor Value is not specific to this example, it is handled by the Phidget libraries, with functions you have access to when you begin developing!




For more information about Voltage Inputs, check out the Voltage Input Primer.


Voltage Ratio Input


Double-click on a Voltage Ratio Input object in order to run the example:


1010 1018 1019 VoltageRatioSensor Example.jpg



General information about the selected object will be displayed at the top of the window. You can also experiment with the following functionality:


  • The voltage ratio is reported in Volts per Volt. For example, if the Phidget is providing 5V and the sensor is sending back 2.5V, the ratio will be 0.5V/V.
  • Modify the change trigger and/or data interval value by dragging the sliders. For more information on these settings, see the data interval/change trigger page.
  • If you have an analog sensor connected that you bought from us, you can select it from the Sensor Type drop-down menu. The example will then convert the voltage into a more meaningful value based on your sensor, with units included, and display it beside the Sensor Value label. Converting voltage to a Sensor Value is not specific to this example, it is handled by the Phidget libraries, with functions you have access to when you begin developing!




For more information about Voltage Ratio Inputs, check out the Voltage Ratio Input Primer.


Digital Input


Double-click on a Digital Input object in order to run the example:


1010 1018 1019 DigitalInput Example.jpg


General information about the selected object will be displayed at the top of the window. You can also experiment with the following functionality:


  • This is an active-low device, therefore, it will be true when connected to ground, and false when connected to a high voltage.


For more information about Digital Inputs, take a look at the Digital Input Primer


Digital Output


Double-click on a Digital Output object in order to run the example:


1010 1018 1019 DigitalOutput Example.jpg



General information about the selected object will be displayed at the top of the window. You can also experiment with the following functionality:


  • Toggle the state of the digital output by pressing the button.


Finding The Addressing Information


Before you can access the device in your own code, and from our examples, you'll need to take note of the addressing parameters for your Phidget. These will indicate how the Phidget is physically connected to your application. For simplicity, these parameters can be found by clicking the button at the top of the Control Panel example for that Phidget.


The locate Phidget button is found in the device information box


In the Addressing Information window, the section above the line displays information you will need to connect to your Phidget from any application. In particular, note the Channel Class field as this will be the API you will need to use with your Phidget, and the type of example you should use to get started with it. The section below the line provides information about the network the Phidget is connected on if it is attached remotely. Keep track of these parameters moving forward, as you will need them once you start running our examples or your own code.


All the information you need to address your Phidget


Using Your Own Program


You are now ready to start writing your own code for the device. The best way to do that is to start from our examples:


This Phidget is compatible with the following examples:




Once you have your example, you will need to follow the instructions on the page for your programming language to get it running. To find these instructions, select your programming language from the Programming Languages page.
