Four Eight or Sixteen Channel ARINC429 Test and Simulation Module

Manufacturer's part number :


Manufacturer AIM


Description :

The ACX429-3U-x is a member of AIM's new fourth generation of advanced cPCI/ PXI (3U) modules for analysing, simulating, monitoring and testing of ARINC429 channels providing up to 16 channels on a 3U cPCI/ PXI standard module format. Four channels are available on the ACX429-3U-4, eight channels on the ACX429-3U-8 and sixteen channels on the ACX429-3U-16 module. All channels are software programmable for Receive (Rx) or Transmit (Tx) mode. The lower eight transmit channels provide variable output amplitudes, whereas the upper eight transmit channels are of fixed amplitude. ACX429-3U-4 and ACX429-3U-8 versions provide separate Tx and Rx pins on all channels, ACX429-3U-16 version provides shared Tx and Rx pins.

An onboard IRIG-B time encoder/ decoder allows users to accurately synchronise single or multiple ACX429-3U-x modules to a common time source. The ACX429-3U-x modules use AIM's 'Next Generation Common Core' (NCC) hardware design utilising multiple RISC processors whereby all channels can operate concurrently at ARINC429 high or low bit rates with the intelligence to process data in real time. The use of an Application Support Processor (ASP) executing the driver software allows user specific test routines to be processed onboard, significantly off-loading the host processor. The ACX429-3U-x cards are configured with 1MB of Global RAM and 64MB of ASP RAM.

Full function driver software is delivered with the ACX429-3U-x cards. The optional PBA.proTM Databus Test and Analysis Tool (for Windows and Linux) and PAA-429/ ParaView Databus Analyser/ Visualiser Software (for Windows) can also be purchased for use with ACX429-3U-x cards.

The module can be installed in standard cPCI (3U) slots, legacy PXI slots and PXI hybrid slots. If installed in a PXI slot, PXI Trigger I/O and a PXI System Reference Clock (10MHz) based time tag mode are supported.
