    Alta Data Technologies’ PC104E-MA4 interface module is a multi-channel, multi-protocol 1553 and ARINC PCI/104-Express interface card supported by the latest software technologies. The PC104E-MA4 card is 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 (MSVS 2005/08/10 C++, C#, VB .NET) architecture. This hardware and software package provides increased system performance and reduces integration time.

    The AltaCore protocol engine  is guaranteed 1553B Notice II & IV and ARINC compliant and all cards are manufactured to the highest IPC-610 Class standards and ISO 9001:2008 processes.  Cards are available in 1553 dual function (BC/Mon or multi-RT/Mon or full function (BC/mRT/Mon) configurations.  Playback and signal generation are part of the BC or ARINC TX.  This card is the industry’s ONLY card that incorporates signal capture on the first 1553 channel and first 2 ARINC RX channels, and supports signal generation for waveform testing.

    Alta is committed to a risk free integration and will help with any phase of your integration.
