PC104P-A429


Overview

ARINC PC/104-Plus Interface Card

The PC104P-A429 interface module from Alta Data provides support for a variety of ARINC-419/429/575/573/717 channel configurations with shared, software selectable RX/TX channels, programmable baud rates, bit encoding and word configurations (Start/Sync/Stop length, Parity, bits/word, MSB/LSB). Encode or decode almost any ARINC-429 physical layer signal.

The PC104P-A429 Transmit (TX) capability includes both simple and complete frequency control options for each channel. TX also includes Playback and Signal Generator operations. Dual Receive (RX) functions include independent simultaneous channel level buffering and multi channel level buffering.
