Smart protocol converter translates avionics messages in real-time
Data Device Corporation (DDC) introduced the AceXtreme Bridge Device to translate avionics messages in real-time between MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429, and Ethernet in any direction, without a host computer. With an onboard Intel Atom processor, two Ethernet channels, two MIL-STD-1553 and six ARINC 429 channels, the AceXtreme Bridge Device is a flexible and cost effective for both rugged embedded applications and test and integration labs. In protocol conversion mode, the onboard processor autonomously converts messages from any input to any output without the need for a host computer. In remote access mode, a host computer can communicate with the device over Ethernet to remotely access data from a MIL-STD-1553 or ARINC 429 data bus. DDC also provides a complete software development kit common across all platforms to simplify software development efforts, and a high level bridging API to conveniently map bits from one protocol to another for autonomous protocol conversion.
