Digital Input/Output Module

The DIO (Digital I/O) Module designed for the TET project acts as a Remote Interface Unit. It conducts commands from the satellite’s CPUs to the instruments and returns data from the instruments to the CPUs for their treatment and storage. The employment of an FPGA eases the design and makes it adaptable to the use of various different interfaces.
