Alta Data Technologies Releases ARINC-429 Product with 16-48 Programmable Channels On A Single Card
Highest ARINC Channel Count Ever Supported on Standard I/O Card
RIO RANCHO, N.M., Nov. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Alta Data Technologies, LLC (Alta) announces the release of a high density ARINC-429 PMC card: PMC-429HD. This new product offers the highest ARINC-429 channel count ever offered in the industry with shared, programmable Receive and Transmit function for all channels. The PMC-429HD is ideal for PCI Express, VPX, VME, Single Board Computers (SBC), CompactPCI (or Express) PXI (or Express) systems. PMC front panel commercial or extended temperature models are available.
"The PMC-429HD offers amazing configuration options of 16, 32 or 48 RX or TX shared ARINC-429 channels, and up to four ARINC-717 channels. Each channel can be software controlled for RX or TX functions, or looped back for self-monitoring. This provides the customer ARINC connections on one card that would have been 2-3 I/O cards. This will save space, power and cost to provide more configuration options for the customer's avionics test and simulation applications," says Harry Wild, Alta VP of Sales.
Jake Haddock, CTO of Alta adds, "The PMC-429HD card incorporates Alta's proven AltaCore-ARINC protocol engine along with industry unique signal capture and signal generator capabilities to provide advanced features for test and simulation applications. Besides our advanced ARINC RX and TX label management, the customer can also perform signal measurement on the first two RX channels and create unique digital test patterns with our signal generator on any TX channel. Our AltaAPI™ SDK and AltaView™ Windows Analyzer make it easy to integrate the card into almost any computer system, including National Instruments LabVIEW™ systems."
