BOHEMIA, N.Y., 31 May 2009. Data Device Corp. (DDC) introduces ARINC 575 support for DDC's new ARINC 429 products including PMC, PC/104-Plus, and PCI-104 cards, featuring various ARINC 429 receive and transmit channel counts. The addition of programmable ARINC 575 support for each ARINC 429 channel on the cards allows for compatibility with legacy systems.
DDC's ARINC 429 data bus interfaces are specifically designed for harsh environment applications such as military avionics systems, and are tested to rugged shock and vibration standards to support critical embedded avionics applications. The cards operate over an industrial temperature range of -40 to +85 degrees C, and are available in conduction or air-cooled configurations. Each card is also optionally available with MIL-STD-1553 channels in addition to ARINC 429/575.
"The unique combination of MIL-STD-1553 and ARINC 429 on a single card, along with the addition of ARINC 575 support, and versatile digital and serial I/O options, makes these cards ideally suited for retrofit applications that routinely require interfacing to a variety of communication standards," says Sean Sleicher, DDC's MIL-STD-1553 marketing manager.
The cards include the MIL-STD-1553 Enhanced Mini-ACE (EMACE) Plus "C" Software Development Kit (SDK) and the ARINC 429 Multi-I/O "C" SDK with drivers for Linux, VxWorks, and Windows 2000/XP, including source code samples and detailed documentation. The ARINC 429 Multi-I/O "C" SDK also includes drivers for Integrity. These SDKs allow users to quickly integrate DDC's 1553 and/or 429 cards and develop applications to simulate, monitor, or troubleshoot 1553 or ARINC 429 data buses.
