PCI-1755 DAQ Tip

This PCI-based card manufactured by Advantech is the high speed 32-channel digital I/O device used for the multiphoton image acquisition system. It has an extra general-purpose 8-ch DI/O feature that comes in handy. However, make sure to flip the on-board 8-pin switches in order to designate individual pins DI or DO. This is something that is easily overlooked and caused confusion for me.
