PEO presents the NIMbox by Wiener; a programmable NIM Module also available in “desk” version NEMbox
PEO introduces the multifunctional NIM modules from Wiener. These modules offer “classic” functionality as discriminators or I/O modules with enhanced programmable logic and read-out possibilities.
Being able to work as multiple coincidence, fan in / fan out, splitter, logic, discriminator, ADC, TDC, etc., NEMbox/NIMbox finds many applications in trigger logic and data acquisition, and allows to cut costs because one single unit replaces the functionality of several non programmable NIM modules.
NEMbox and NIMbox consist of a FPGA main and carrier board and up to 4 I/O Submodules, VHDL modules as well as interface software featuring “LogicPool”, a very new and unique way for the user to build up his specific setup by using prebuilt functional modules and to wire them internally for his application.
A user defined internal wiring configuration is saved on an EPROM chip so that the module does not need to be reprogrammed in case of power failure or system reset. All communication with the module as well as programming is done via a USB-2 interface.
