Multi-Protocol PCIC Bus Card PCIC-MA4

The PMC-MA4 interface module is a multi-channel, multi protocol 1553 and ARINC PCIC Card.  Supported by the latest software technologies to enable great system performance and easy integration.  PCIC is a PMC PCI 32 Carrier.

The Alta Data PCIC-MA4 is a Multi-Protocol PCIC Bus Card.  Firstly, this product uses the 32-bit FPGA protocol engine technology (AltaCore) with AltaAPI multi layered software.  This hardware and software package provides fast and portable integrations.

Secondly, the capability includes variable message/label framing/subframing with transmission scheduling provides the most advanced control operations.  ARINC TX has complete frequency control per channel.  RT and ARINC RX – Monitor, Playback and provide Signal Generator functions for the most demanding requirements.

Features of Multi-Protocol PCIC Bus Card PCIC-MA4 include:

  • 1-5 Independent, Dual Redundant (A/B) MIL-STD-1553 Channels and 8 ARINC Channels on PCI Carrier
  • PMC on PCI 32 Carrier Configuration
  • Dual Function 1553 (BC/Mon or mRT/Mon) or Full Function (BC/mRT/Mon)
  • ARINC – 8 Channels Total:4 Shared TX/RX & 4 Dedicated RX; 512 Kbyte of RAM for all Channels/Banks
  • 512 Kbyte RAM per 1553 Channel and ARINC Channels
  • **Capture 1553 & ARINC Waveforms**
  • First 1553 Channel & First Two ARINC RX Channels
