XMC-A429


Overview

High Density ARINC Interface for XMC Systems
The XMC-A429 interface modules from Alta Data offer a variety of ARINC-419/429/575/573/717 channel configurations with software selectable Rx/Tx channels, baud rates, bit encoding and word configurations (Start/Sync/Stop length, Parity, bits/word, MSB/LSB).

The PCI-A429 Transmit (TX) capability includes both simple and complete frequency control options for each channel and Playback and Signal Generator modes.  Three Receive (RX) functions including channel and multi channel levels.
