ARINC-429 Interface Packs Up To 48 Channels On A Single Card

Alta Data Technologies’ PMC-429HD high-density ARINC-429 PMC card is said have the highest ARINC-429 channel count ever offered in the industry with shared, programmable Receive and Transmit functions for all channels. The PMC-429HD is suitable for PCI Express, VPX, VME, single-board computers (SBCs), CompactPCI (or Express) PXI (or Express) systems. PMC front panel commercial or extended temperature models are also 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.
