UNIVERSAL USB I/O
Saelig Company, Inc., has announced an improved USB
I/O controller — the IO-Warrior56 —
now with 50 I/O pins as well as
integrated complex functionality. In
addition to I2C, SPI, 8x8 key matrix,
64 x 8 LED matrix, and support for
most alphanumeric and graphic LCD
modules, the new version also offers
an eight-channel 14-bit A/D converter
and a 16-bit PWM generator.
The IO-Warrior56 handles the
control of more complex signals
internally in order to reduce USB
traffic and CPU programming burden.
With the addition of an A/D
converter, the IO-Warrior56 is now
capable of handling analog signals.
Each of the eight analog channels can
be sampled every 385 µs. When
running in single channel mode, the
sample rate is 7,800 Hz.
A new 16-bit PWM generator
uses an internal 1 kHz, 250 kHz, 2
MHz, or 48 MHz clock and can
generate output signals at up to 12
The IO-Warrior56 is available as a
plug-in PCB module or as a 56-pin IC
for installing on a custom board. Also
available is a new IOW56 Starter Kit
with a large breadboard area,
designed specifically for the IO-
Warrior ICs from Code
Mercenaries are a family of universal
I/O controllers for USB that handle all
complex USB protocol details without
requiring special Windows drivers
since Warrior ICs appear to the OS as
HID Device Class (Human Interface
This means that Warrior ICs are
controlled without screen prompting
for additional software; standard
system drivers allow access to
Warrior ICs directly from
application programs. A Linux
driver is also available.
All of the modules work with
standard HID system drivers, so no
special installation software is
needed; just hook up to a USB port
and connection is immediate.
IO-Warrior56 technical data is
• Full speed USB ( 12 Mbit/s, 1,000
• Works with built-in system drivers
• 50 I/O pins for general use
• I2C master, 50/100/400 kHz
• Direct control for most
alphanumeric and graphic LCD
• SPI master up to 8 Mbit/s
• LED matrix up to 64 x 8 with
external shift registers
• 8 x 8 key or switch matrix
• 16-bit PWM generator (up to 12
• Available as chip, module, or starter
The IO-Warrior56 Starter Kit is
priced at $44.
