SKU: PCIE4L-A429 Category:


Alta Data Technologies’ PCIE4L-A429 interface modules 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). Encode or decode almost any ARINC-429 physical layer signal.

The card design is based on the industry’s most advanced 32-bit ARINC FPGA protocol engine, AltaCore™, and a feature-rich application programming interface, AltaAPI™, which is a multi-layer ANSI C and Windows .NET (MSVS 2005/08/10 C++, C#, VB .NET, LabVIEW, RTOS) architecture. This hardware and software package provides increased system performance and flexibility while reducing integration time.
