PC/104/T2/R2

The PC104/T2/R2 ARINC 429 Interface card is configured as a 16 bit Stack-through PC/104 interface card and comprises of two independent transmitter channels that act as Bus Traffic Simulators and two independent receiver channels that provide advanced Real Time Monitor and Data Acquisition functions. The functions on the four channels are available concurrently at full performance level. The card also contains a microprocessor, a time tag register, Data Acquisition FIFO, and Dual Port memory for ease of interfacing to the PC AT bus.

All units are designed to meet the European and US EMC regulations.

PC/104/T2/R2 Detail

Transmit Operation:
In Simulation mode, the PC104/T2/R2 executes autonomously instructions held in the interface memory and will perform cyclic and one shot modes of operation. Label repetition rate and minor and major frame rates are completely controlled at the board level, which significantly reduces the host PC overhead. The output rise and fall time of the output signals are switchable to adapt to the selected transmit frequency. For each simulated ARINC-429 Transmitter all Labels can be generated and the label data and descriptors can be updated during simulation at any time without corrupting the transmission. Multi-SDI transmissions of the same label are possible and variation of individual Label/SDI descriptors in real time are also permitted.

Receive Operation:
The opto-coupled receivers provide for comprehensive Bus Monitoring and Data Acquisition. All received data is time tagged to 1mS resolution. All Label/SDI filtering is performed on the card and data captured from the bus is stored in 8k of FIFO memory. The card can be programmed to generate interrupts when the FIFO reaches the half-full point or the status of the FIFO's can be polled.

Windows Real Time Simulation and Data Bus Analyzer software:
The card is supplied with a full function Windows 95/98/NT4/2000 (later operating systems, including XP, will also be supported - check with YED for further information) Real Time Simulation / Data Bus Analyser package providing a complete turnkey solution. All data is displayable in engineering units (standard or custom) with labels shown in octal. All data fields are user definable. Multiple fields within a data word are possible, i.e. Discrete/Flags mixed with a Binary field within a single word. Currently, engineering formats are available for Signed binary, Unsigned binary, 2's compliment, BCD and Discrete data.
