    • 4-30 ARINC-429 Channels: Up to 16 Shared RX/TX & 14 RX
    • Commercial and Extended Temp Models
    • **Signal Capture on Two RX Channels - Standard**
    • One MByte, 32-bit RAM per 16 Channel Bank
    • Up to 4 ARINC 717 RX and TX Channels
    • Shared Avionics Trigger, RS-485 and IRIG-B PAM Input

    Alta Data Technologies’ PCI-A429 interface module offers 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 PCI-A429 card 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 2.0 (MSVS 2005 C++, C#, VB .NET) architecture. This hardware and software package provides increased system performance and flexibility while reducing integration time.

    The PCI-A429 Transmit (TX) capability includes both simple and complete frequency control options for each channel. TX also includes Playback and Signal Generator operations. Dual Receive (RX) functions include independent simultaneous channel level buffering and multi channel level buffering. AltaCore is guaranteed ARINC-419/429/575/573/717 compliant and all cards are manufactured to the highest IPC-Level 3 standards and certified ISO 9001:2008 processes. Alta is committed to provide each customer with a risk free integration and will help with any level of your system development.

  • AltaAPI
    Alta’s 1553 and ARINC cards include the most advanced Application Programming Interface (API) library tools in the avionics industry, AltaAPI. The API architecture is an extremely flexible design to provide quick porting to various operating systems (such as VxWorks 5.X/6.X/MILS, Integrity, LynxOS RTOS), Linux 32/64 (contact factory for latest version - new releases about twice a year), Solaris 10, LabVIEW and Windows XP/2003/Vista/7/8/8.1/10

    AltaAPI-LV
    Alta’s MIL-STD-1553 & ARINC products are support by the industry’s most advanced National Instruments’ LabVIEW™ & RT Support Tools, AltaAPI-LV. Built in native NI LabWindows environment and PCI VISA drivers, Alta’s AltaAPI-LV provides a unified NI tool for easy integration to LabVIEW, RT and LabWindows™ applications.

    AltaRTVal
    AltaRTVal provides the most advanced MIL-STD-1553 COTS validation tool in the industry. Helps prepare for Test Systems Inc Validation (See NOTE). Ideal for testing new software revisions and of current designs or manufacturing production units. The software implements the protocol tests (5.2) for both the SAE AS4111 RT Validation Test Plan and the SAE AS4112 RT Production Test Plan to simplify design and production validation.

    AltaView Bus Analyzer
    Alta’s Windows avionics analyzer product, AltaView, provides the most modern technologies for MIL-STD-1553 and ARINC-429 network activity and data analysis.
