Software

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 a properly OSI modeled development package that provides an extremely flexible design to provide quick porting to various operating systems (such as VxWorks 5.X/6.X/7/MILS, Integrity, LynxOS RTOS), Linux 2.4-3.X 32/64, Solaris 10, LabVIEW and Windows XP/2003/Vista/7/8/8.1/10

AltaAPI-LV
Most of Alta’s MIL-STD-1553 & ARINC products include 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 protocol validation tool in the industry, and helps prepare for Test Systems Inc Full SAE 4111 Validation. The software implements protocol tests for both the SAE AS4111 RT Validation Test Plan and the SAE AS4112 RT Production Test Plan. Ideal for testing new software revisions of current designs or manufacturing production units.

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.
