List of Abbreviations


Analog to Digital Converter - An electrical device that converts analog physical measurements to digital values. The physical measurement is often assumed to be a voltage.


Application Programming Interface - An interface between software components.


Device under Test - A DUT is a product or system undergoing a test. The test is performed by the devices connected to the DUT. In the context of this manual the LXA IOBus 4DO-3DI-3AI is a considered part of the test-system and the LXA IOBus 4DO-3DI-3AI is intended to be connected to the DUT.


Electromagnetic Interference - EMI describes interference in systems caused by electromagnetic radiation generated by other devices or the system itself. EMI can lead to restrictions in functionality or malfunctions.


Electrostatic Discharge - This event describes the sudden flow of electric charge between a charged body and an electric device. The energy released during this event can damage the electrical device.


In System Programmer - A tool that allows uploading new firmware to a device without requiring disassembly or other invasive actions.


Layer Setting Services - A CANopen protocol that allows the configuration of individual node ids and the communication bitrate.


Printed Circuit Board - A part of an electrical assembly providing physical support and electrical connections to other components.


Representational State Transfer - A paradigm for the design of APIs. The lxa-iobus-server provides a REST API on top of HTTP.


Surface Mount Technology - An assembly method for electrical devices where devices are placed on the surface of a PCB and the mounting and electrical connections are handled by re-flowing of solder in an oven.


Through Hole Technology - An assembly method for electrical devices where connectors of devices penetrate through holes in the PCB and solder is applied on the opposite side to structurally and electrically connect the connector and the PCB.
