Boondog believes that you will not find a completely
assembled 8255 PC Interface Card Ensemble at a cheaper
price anywhere in the world. Other companies
have 8255-type cards but have hidden costs charging
you extra for cables and terminal expansion boxes.
Nor do they have Applications Manuals.
With Boondog, there are no hidden costs.
8255 PC Interface Card
Simple to use and powerful!
With this card you can interface and control
almost any device such as DC and stepper motors,
relays, transistors, LCDs, keypads, DAC and ADC converters.
This card plugs into your PC ISA slot. Compatible
with all PCs (original to the latest Pentium).
The included 34-pin IDC connector cable,
brings all 24 digital lines, and +12,-12,+5,-5 V lines
to the Terminal Expansion Board.
IDC connectors are more prototyping-friendly. DB-sub
style ones (typically found on other companies' cards)
have two off-centered rows which do not fit into
breadboards. Boondog uses IDC connectors. They have
standard 0.1 inch spacings, making it easy for you
to engineer your add-on creations with.
The included Terminal Expansion Board has
standard header posts so that you can easily hook-up
your sensors, motors, and engineering creations. It
even has a 152-hole prototyping area so that you
can build any of your additional circuits on if you wish.
