1553 & ARINC PCIe Bus Card PCIEC4L-MA4

The PCIEC4L-MA4 interface module is a multi-channel, multi protocol ½ sized PCI Express 4 lane interface card (PMC on 4 Lane PCI Express Carrier).

Supported by the latest software technologies to enable great system performance and easy integration

The Alta Data PCIEC4L-MA4 is a 1553 & ARINC PCIe Bus Card.  Firstly, it uses the 32-bit FPGA protocol engine technology (AltaCore-1553) with AltaAPI multi layered software.  This hardware and software package provides fast and portable integrations.

Secondly, this model is available in dual or full function configurations.  Dual Function offers BC/Mon or Multi-RT/Monitor or Full function with BC, mRT and Mon configurations.  Playback and Signal generation are part of the BC operations.

Features of 1553 & ARINC PCIe Bus Card PCIEC4L-MA4 include:

  • 1-5 Independent, Dual Redundant MIL-STD-1553 Channels, Optional 8 ARINC Channels. PMC on PCIe 4x Lane Carrier.
  • Dual Function 1553 (BC/Mon or mRT/Mon) or Full Function (BC/mRT/Mon)
  • – 4 Shared TX/RX & 4 Dedicated RX
  • 512 Kbyte RAM per 1553 Channel and for ARINC Channels
  • ARINC – 8 Channels Total:
  • **Capture 1553 & ARINC Waveforms**
  • First 1553 Channel & First Two ARINC RX Channels
  • 8-bit, 50 nSec for 1553 – 1 uSec for ARINC A/D for Voltage Measurements
  • Channels May be Factory Configured to fix ARINC RX/TX or Monitor Only 1553.
  • Advanced BC & ARINC TX Frequency Controls: 1553 Framing/Subframing;
  • RT/ARINC RX Full Buffering with 64-bit 20 nsec Time Tags
