Colibrick - External USB A/D Converter

Colibrick is a brand new external 24-bit A/D converter bringing to customers the precison of Int9  PCI cards and portability of U-PAD2 USB device.

ColibrickUp to:

  • 4 channels,
  • 4 digital inputs,
  • 8 digital TTL outputs.

And meet those conditions:

  • small and portable box,
  • USB powered,
  • status indicators.

Colibrick uses the USB port of your PC and thus is directly powered from it. The unit can be connected or disconnected anytime without the necessity to switch the computer off. The input connector is compatible with the internal INT7/9 boards and U-PAD/2 devices.

Colibrick is a modernized successor of bringing you the best of successful U-PAD2 converter and Int9 card.
