Known Problems with the Kits

  • COM2 may not work properly with Simulink/XPC Target
  • Analog outputs inverted and not quite scaled 1:1 (5V commanded out is actually approximately -4.5V) - read this
  • Digital outputs are open collector circuits -- although not a problem, can be confusing, like the analog outputs - read this too
  • Digital outputs reset to low momentarily whenever model is started and when model is downloaded, independent of "reset vector" and "initial value vector" settings. (at least with 2006a+ version of xPC -- unsure of bug in other versions)
