Industrial digital output expansion board based on IPS160HF for STM32 Nucleo

The X-NUCLEO-OUT08A1 industrial digital output expansion board for STM32 Nucleo provides a powerful and flexible evaluation and development environment for 2 A (typ.) digital output modules, featuring the safe driving and smart diagnostic capabilities of the IPS160HF single high-side switch.

The X-NUCLEO-OUT08A1 interfaces with the microcontroller on the STM32 Nucleo via 3 kV optocouplers driven by GPIO pins and Arduino™ UNO R3 (default configuration) and ST morpho (optional, not mounted) connectors.

The expansion board should be connected to either a NUCLEO-F401RE or NUCLEO-G431RB development board, and can also be stacked with another X-NUCLEO-OUT08A1 or X-NUCLEO-OUT10A1.

Two X-NUCLEO-OUT08A1 expansion boards allows you to evaluate a dual channel digital output module with 2 A (typ.) capability each, or a 2 A (typ.) single channel safety digital output module. In the second scenario, the first shield output is connected to the supply of the second one. Dedicated on-board hardware can be enabled or disabled to activate fast discharge of high capacitive loads, output voltage sensing and additional surge pulse output line protection.
