  • BX-APAD use

    How is the BX-APAD different from assigning a module manually? Can someone provide an example of use?

  • #2
    APAD is a "wildcard" that can replace any manually assigned module, without breaking anything. So if you have an optional analog module, you can replace it with the APAD and the slot and config stay put and the CPU won't complain. Useful for OEMs who have a single program with optional modules, which is hard to do with ad hoc backplanes where slots are implied. HWINFO can be used to determine is the the module is really there or not.

      Or if you are building a machine in stages and want to put certain modules next to each other, but don't want to buy the actual module right now; budget constraints, etc. Put an APAD in at $25 and reserve the slot for what will really go there later.
