GE has secured orders from Lee Air for substantial quantities of GE's CEI-430 high density ARINC 429 intelligent interface for PC/104-Plus which will be deployed within Cessna aircraft avionics systems, company officials say.
The CEI-430 avionics databus interface provides integrated databus functionality for as many as 24 channels of ARINC 429 or 575 along with ARINC 717, 573 and other selected two-wire, 32-bit protocols, on a PC/104-Plus or PCI-104 platform.
The CEI-430 supports maximum data throughput on all 24 ARINC 429 channels while providing on-board message scheduling, label filtering, multiple buffering options, time-tagging, and error detection. Configurations with support for ARINC 717, ARINC 573, and IRIG-B receiver (AM or DC/TTL) and generator (DC/TTL) support are optional.
The IRIG-B DC level output signal can be utilized to synchronize time stamps across multiple boards. Ruggedized configurations with extended operating temperatures are also available.
