All data bus functionality is supported by our advanced API (Application Programming Interface).

 

HARDWARE

The AT-PCC-1553 card comes with a single dual redundant MIL-STD-1553B channel. Configured with a controller from DDC, it provides 64K of Static RAM. Built around the 16-bit PC Card architecture, the card provides a rugged interface to mobile computers and devices. It operates at 5V thus saving battery life of the host PC. The card single function architecture can emulate as a Bus Controller or 31 Remote Terminals or Monitor Terminal modes.

Transformer and Direct Coupling
Suitable cables are to be used for either of the configurations. It is configured to work in the transformer-coupled mode by default.
