The AT-PCC-429 card provides a flexible, powerful ARINC429 avionics data bus interface to the PC card socket. The card can be used with a laptop, notebook PC, a desktop PC, or any other device that has a PC Card interface. The AT-PCC-429 is based on Type II PC Card architecture. The card is designed to transmit and receive messages up to 6 channels. Each channel is software configurable for high or low speed (12.5k or 100k bits per second) and ARINC429 protocol requirements. The ARINC data word can be decoded and sorted based on the Label and SDI bits and stored in RAM and/or FIFO’s. The card is integrated with powerful software that reduces development time. All data bus functionality is supported by our advanced API (Application Programming Interface) and VIP (Virtual Instrument Panel).

 

HARDWARE

The AT-PCC-429 card can be configured with single ARINC429 controller from DDC, which is configured as 2 Transmit and 4 Receive channels. The controller has 128 x 32 bit static RAM, four 32 (words deep) x 32 (bit) Receive FIFO’s and two 32 (words deep) x 32 (bit) transmit FIFO’s. Look-up tables loaded into RAM enable the controller’s receive circuitry to filter and sort incoming data by label and destination bit as well as provide multilevel data specific interrupts or hardware triggers.

Drivers & APIs

The card comes with a powerful set of library functions to access the entire ARINC429 functionality. The drivers are designed in a modular fashion consisting of component functions and application functions. The user’s test program can be developed with few calls to the card driver, by using the set of Application functions provided. Driver and high-level API libraries for Windows XP are available. Sample application programs are included.
