Parvus Selects DDC's New MIL-STD-1553 PC/104-Plus Card for US Navy Aircraft Upgrade Program

DDC's 1553 Card Qualified by Parvus as Integration Option for DuraCOR 810 Mission Processor

BOHEMIA, NEW YORK - January 7, 2008 - Data Device Corporation (DDC), an international leading supplier of high-reliability MIL-STD-1553 and ARINC 429 data bus products, is pleased to announce a new partnership with Parvus Corporation. Parvus has selected DDC's MIL-STD-1553 PC/104-Plus card for use in applications that require a 1553 interface.

The DDC PC/104-Plus card provides up to four dual redundant 1553 channels, five user-programmable digital discrete I/Os, selectable external or internal time-tag clock, and an IRIG-B time synchronization input. The card has an intelligent hardware offload engine that dramatically reduces PCI bus and host CPU utilization, while storing 1553 Monitor data in a convenient and portable IRIG-106 Chapter 10 file format.

Parvus utilizes DDC's BU-65578C MIL-STD-1553 PC/104-Plus card in a US Navy aircraft upgrade program and has also pre-qualified the card as an integration option for Parvus' DuraCOR 810 mission processor platform, which is being specified by prime contractors into a large number of US military programs. Parvus has proven that this 1553 card successfully integrates into the system. Parvus serves a large, diverse group of military and commercial contractors developing intelligent, ruggedized computing and communications solutions for harsh field environments.

"We have selected DDC's PC/104-Plus cards for use in our embedded systems that require a MIL-STD-1553 data bus due to the product's high quality and proven reliability along with DDC's solid reputation for excellent support," states Mike Southworth, Parvus Corporation Marketing Director.
