1. Fundamentals of Digital I/O
|Voltage Levels are what define how a device determines a valid logic state (logic high level or logic low level). Learn more »|
|Logic Families (Single-Ended versus Differential) are groups of logic circuits with standardized voltage levels that constitute a voltage high or low level. All circuits within a logic family are compatible with other circuits within that family because they share the same characteristics.

|Clocked Digital I/O Generation, Acquisition, and Compare are digital operations where binary data is sent or received from a digital device to a device under test (DUT) across multiple pins/channels.

|Termination is an important principle to understand when designing high-speed digital so that you can maximize signal quality and minimize the effects of signal reflections. Learn more »|
|Industrial Digital I/O Features include isolation, higher voltage levels, programmable power-up states, change-of-state detection, watchdog timers, and industrial certifications. Learn more »|
