Alta Data Technologies’ CPCIC3/6-MA4 interface module is a multi-channel, multi-protocol 1553 and ARINC cPCI card supported by the latest software technologies. The PMC card are based on the industry’s most advanced 32-bit FPGA protocol engine, AltaCore™, and by a feature-rich application programming interface, AltaAPI™, which is a multi-layer ANSI C and Windows .NET 2.0 (MSVS 2005 C++, C#, VB .NET) architecture. This hardware and software package provides increased system performance and reduces integration time.

The CPCIC3/6-MA4’s BC capability includes variable message/label framing/subframing with transmission scheduling provides the most advanced control operations. ARINC TX has complete frequency control per channel. RT and ARINC RX, Monitor, Playback and Signal Generator functions also include industry leading functions to meet the most demanding requirements.

AltaCore is guaranteed 1553B Notice II & IV and ARINC compliant and all cards are manufactured to the highest IPC-Level 3 standards and certified ISO 9001:2008 processes. Playback and Signal Generation are part of BC-TX operations. We are committed to a risk free integration and will be glad to help with any level of your system development.
