NEW NMEA 0183 to ARINC 429 Data Converter releasedYED Avionics
After many requests, we are pleased to announce the release of this new product, the YED/NMEA-R1/A429-T1. This new converter translates NMEA 0183 GPS data to ARINC 429 traffic. Serial baud rates of 4800, 9600, 19200 and 38400 are supported as standard. Other baud rates can be specified at time of order or via an e-mailed firmware upgrade. ARINC 429 transmission at 12.5, 50 or 100kHz is switch selectable.
Another new feature of this new design allows the customer to update the internal firmware held in FLASH ROM via an RS232 serial link. This removes the need to return products to YED for upgrade or modification. As new NMEA 0183 sentences are added to the firmware, users will be able to upgrade their products to make use of the expanded capability.
