PMC Interface Card Provides 16PP194 F-16 WMUX Connectivity

Rio Rancho, NM (July 10, 2013)Alta Data Technologies (Alta) announces the release of the PMC-WMUX interface card, a key system integration product for Lockheed’s F-16 systems.  Based on a standard PMC card footprint, which can be used in standard PCI, PCIe, cPCI/PXI systems, Alta has implemented an advanced FPGA 16PP194 protocol engine to support single or dual redundant WMUX network busses (“wings”).

“The PMC-WMUX represents the latest avionics support for one of the world’s most popular fighter platforms with over 20 country customers and 4000 airplanes.  The PMC-WMUX and 1553 interfaces enable complete avionics test to the “wings” of F-16 systems.  No other company can offer the complete MIL-STD-1553 and WMUX support Alta has implemented.” states Harry Wild, Vice President of Sales for Alta.

Rich Wade, Alta CTO, adds “When asked to support 16PP194 WMUX from our customers, this represented a logical step for Alta product portfolio.  Combined with our MIL-STD-1553 support, and new real-time Ethernet 1553 and ARINC converter products (ENET-1553 and ENET-A429), the WMUX product line allows Alta to provide a complete product offering to a key customer base.  Our advanced FPGA protocol engine and software architecture allowed Alta to implement and deliver this new product in record time with more advanced features than legacy products.”
