I/O modules are components used for communication and control between different devices. Often the communication occurs between a computer and its peripherals, which include image scanners, microphones, digital cameras, scanners, etc.
These modules perform the following major functions:
- processor or device communication
- configurable switches for power switching
- control and timing
- data buffering and error correction
The primary applications include test development labs, IT infrastructure, and process automation. Symmetry offers RoHS-compliant, 16-device port I/O modules from Lantronix, a leading manufacturer.
