PCI ARINC 429 INTERFACE CARD
The PCI-720 ARINC 429 Interface card is a
half-length PCI version 2.1 compliant interface card. Depending upon the
options at time of ordering, the card will comprise of one or two
independent transmitter channels that function as Bus Traffic Simulators
and one (PCI-720/1) or two (PCI-720/2) independent receiver channels to
provide advanced Bus Monitor and Analysis functions.
The functions on all four channels are available concurrently at full
performance level. In addition to this the card also contains, a
microprocessor, a time tag register, on-card Filtering by Label and SDI,
Optional 28-volt Event input, Optional RS232/RS422 converter, Data
Acquisition FIFO's, and Dual Port memory for ease of interfacing to the
PCI host bus.

- One or Two independent
transmitters independent opto-coupled receive channels.
- Dual Port RAM
interface for holding transmit sequence and ARINC 429 data tables.
- Independent High/Low
speed selection of
transmit data rates for each channel
- 28 bit Time Tag
register (1mS resolution) for
timing incoming data.
- Automatic High/Low
speed adaption on received data for each channel with indication.
- On card filtering of
incoming data by Label/SDI
- 8 kilobytes of
Acquisition FIFO with Interrupt and polling capabilities.
- Optional 28-volt opto-coupled
Event input for marking data during data acquisition.
- Optional RS232/RS422
bi-directional Data Conversion on card.
Simulation mode, the PCI-720 executes autonomously instructions held
in the interface
memory and will perform cyclic and one shot modes of
Label repetition rate, 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.
opto-coupled receivers provide for comprehensive Bus Monitoring and
Data Acquisition to hard disk.
All received data is time tagged to 1mS resolution. All Label/SDI
filtering is performed on the card
and data captured from each bus is
stored in 8k of FIFO memory, which is off-loaded by the
PC at regular
interrupt intervals. The card can be programmed to generate interrupts
when the FIFO reaches the half-full point or the status of the FIFO
can be polled.
Real Time Simulation and Data Bus Analyzer software
The card is supplied with
a full function Windows 95/98/NT4/2000 Real Time Simulation
Data Bus Analyzer
package providing a complete turnkey solution.
data is displayable in engineering units (standard or custom) with
labels shown in octal.
All data fields are user definable.
fields within a data word are possible. ie Discrete/Flags mixed with a
field within a single word.
Currently, engineering formats are available for Signed binary, Unsigned
2's compliment, BCD and Discrete data.
