BOHEMIA, N.Y., 24 March 2011. North Atlantic Industries in Bohemia, N.Y., is introducing a family of 3U CompactPCI data-acquisition boards for sensor and communications data acquisition, distribution, processing, and management for military aircraft, land vehicles, ships, and submarines.The 75DP3 is a single slot, 3U CompactPCI CPU board with the Freescale PowerPC MPC8536 or Analog Devices Blackfin BF533 digital signal processor. The embedded computing board performs discrete, differential, and TTL digital I/O; A/D, D/A, RTD, and strain gage analog I/O; synchro/ resolver/LVDT/RVDT measurement, encoder/counter, and simulation motion control and sensor interfaces; and RS232/422/485, MIL-STD-1553, CANBus, ARINC 429/575, and Gigabit Ethernet switch communication interfaces. All function data is available on the CompactPCI bus or Gigabit Ethernet.
The U3 processor module uses the Freescale 1.25 GHz e500 core MPC8536 PowerPC processor and Wind River VxWorks 6.x BSPm, as well as North Atlantic's libraries. The U2 processor module, meanwhile, has the Analog Devices 500 MHz low power Blackfin BF-533 processor, the Visual DSP++ development environment, and North Atlantic's function libraries.
