SKU: PMC-A429-HD Category:


Alta Data Technologies’ PMC-A429HD interface card offers an unparalled 16, 32 or 48 channels of ARINC-429 on a single-width, front panel PMC module. The PMC card can be used in almost any PCI/PCIe based backplane system, and can encode or decode almost any ARINC-429 physical layer signal.  The card can also support several 717 channels.

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  VB .NET, LabVIEW, RTOS architecture.  This hardware and software package provides increased system performance and flexibility while reducing integration time.

The PMC-A429HD 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.


  • ARINC-419/429/575 Configurations:
    • 16 Shared Rx/TX Channels, or
