I've been given a project which, in part, involves some data acquisition coding using a ComputerBoards DAS-08 card. I'm a complete newbie in this area, especially since I graduated in Mechanical Engineering, and not Electrical
I've been trying to understand how to code, in C or C++, a simple way to output a high signal (+5V) on one of the digital outs (as an example, pin #10 on the DAS08 analog 37-pin connector), but the example programs I've been giving are far more complicated than I need, and as such they're not exactly easy to pick apart.
I'm capable of some simple C programming (ASCII file I/O, arrays, etc...) but this one has me stumped. I know you have to configure the ports at the beginning of the program using some hex addresses but even this has me confused. I have a feeling the program I need to write is probably about 8 lines long and extremely simple, but getting started is very frustrating.
If anyone can help me out it would be greatly appreciated!
