PCI Card Offers Multiple I/Os and Channels
Presenting an IRIG-B time synchronization input, Data Device Corporation’s BU-65590I multi-I/O PCI card provides up to 4 dual-redundant MIL-STD-1553 channels, 16 ARINC 429 receive channels, 4 ARINC 429 transmit channels, 6 user-programmable digital discrete I/Os, 2 RS-232 serial I/O channels, and 2 RS-422/485 serial I/O channels. The component includes a combined RT/Monitor mode to monitor all 1553 communications on the bus, including the 1553 channel’s own RT address, and each 1553 channel can emulate a bus controller, remote terminal, or bus monitor. The card has a hardware offload DMA architecture that stores 1553 monitor data in a portable IRIG-106 Chapter 10 file format. Each ARINC 429 channel supports high/low speed operation, message scheduling, label filtering, and full error detection. A standard version of the card is available with just ARINC 429 to interface with up to 16 receive and 4 transmit ARINC 429 channels.
