ARINC 429 PCI Interface Card PCI-A429

The PCI-A429 is COTS ARINC 429 Communications Solution for the Avionics, Defence and Aerospace Industries. Channel Configurations with Software include ARINC 419/429/575/573/717.

Allowing selectable Rx/Tx channels, baud rates, bit encoding and word configurations such as Start/Sync/Stop; Parity; bits/word; and MSB/LSB).  As well as the ability to encode or decode almost any ARINC-429 physical layer signal.

The Alta Data PCI-A429 is an ARINC 429 PCI Interface card for Avionics applications.  Firstly, this product comes with the feature rich AltaAPI which is the support software. It is a multi-layer ANSIC and Windows. NET 2.0 architecture.  This hardware and software combination increases system performance, offers flexibility whilst reducing integration time.

Secondly, the PCI-A429 is based on AltaCore™.  An advanced 32-bit FPGA Protocol Engine technology giving you the ability to encode and decode almost any ARINC-429 physical level signal.  Therefore, providing advanced test functions of signal generation and A/D signal capture.

The Transmit Tx capability in the product includes simple and complete frequency controls for each channel.  Also including playback and signal generator operations.  Whereas, the Dual Receive (RX) functions include simultaneous channel level buffering and multi channel level buffering.

Features of ARINC 429 PCI Interface Card PCI-A429 include:

  • 4-30 ARINC-429 Channels with up to 16 shared RX/TX & 14 RX Channels
  • Half size PCI
  • **Signal capture on two RX Channels standard
  • Up to 4 ARINC 717 RX and TX Channels
  • 1 Mb, 32 RAM per 16 Channel Bank
  • Shared Avionics Trigger, RS-485 and IRIG-B PAM Input
  • Simultaneous Channel level and Multi Channel RX
  • Full TX Frequency Control and Buffering per Channel
  • Programmable Bit Rate (512-200K), Bit Encoding, Bits
  • Per Word, Start/Stop, and Parity
  • Encode/Decode almost any ARINC-429 PHY Signal
