Alta Data Technologies’ PC104P interface module is a multi-channel (1-4) 1553 card supported by the latest software technologies. The PC104P card is based on the industry’s most advanced 32-bit 1553 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 PC104P-1553’s BC capability, including variable message framing/subframing with transmission scheduling provides the most advanced BC control operations. RT, Monitor, Playback and Signal Generator functions also include industry leading functions to meet the most demanding requirements.

AltaCore is guaranteed 1553B Notice II & IV compliant and is manufactured to the highest IPC-Level 3 standards and certified AS9100 processes. Cards are available in dual-function (BC/Mon or multi-RT/Monitor) or full-function (BC, mRT and Mon) configurations. Playback and Signal Generation are part of BC 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 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 32- and 64-bit, Solaris 10, LabVIEW and 32- and 64-bit Windows 7/8/8.1/10.

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.
