    Alta Data Technologies’ PMC-MA4 interface module is a multi-channel, multi-protocol 1553 and ARINC PMC 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 PMC-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.

  • 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

    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.
