eNet-A429P™ is an innovative product that provides “remoting” of ARINC operations on 10/100/1000 Ethernet IP/UDP local area networks (LAN). eNet-A429P is a small, low-power, device ideal for details ARINC signal testing with variable voltaqe control of the first 3 TX channels. Alta has combined the industry’s most advanced 32-bit ARINC FPGA protocol engine, AltaCore™, with a real-time IP/UDP thin server. The customer can implement their application with the same feature-rich application programming interface, AltaAPI™, as used with standard cards – often without even recompiling – the utlimate in code portability.

**NOTE: eNet-A429P (server) is a real-time Ethernet/ARINC device, but your computers’ (client) IP stack may not be! The eNet-A429 device provides real-time UDP receive and transmit requests to ARINC buffers, but the client’s IP/UDP stack will induce path delays as compared to backplane cards. For many applications (<100-1000 packets per second), this product will provide unparalleled flexibility in ARINC configurations (much better than USB devices). Contact Alta for test results on various OS and computer configurations – your system results may vary.

Optional J1 and J2 Cable Assemblies Provided – Please See Part Numbers Above.
