Single Stream STANAG3910/ EFEX Test and Simulation Module

Manufacturer's part number :


Manufacturer AIM


Description :

The ACX3910-3U-1 is a member of AIM's new fourth generation family of advanced cPCI/ PXI (3U) bus modules for analysing, simulating, monitoring and testing STANAG3910/ EFEX databuses. The ACX3910-3U-1 module concurrently acts as the Bus Controller, Multiple Remote Terminals (31) and Chronological/ Mailbox Bus Monitor.

The ACX3910-3U-1 provides one fully independent Dual redundant STANAG3910 High Speed and Low Speed interface on a single cPCI/ PXI (3U) card form factor.

The ACX3910-3U-1 can be used for Protocol Testing and Simulation of STANAG3910 LS/HS Bus Controller, Multiple Remote Terminals and Chronological Monitoring at full bus loads. All BC/RT/BM operations are performed concurrently with no degradation in performance in any operational LS/HS mode. The HS section of the ACX3910-3U-1 supports EFAbus Direct Digital Links (DDL) and Fibre Optic DDL (FODDL) acquisition. EFAbus Express (EFEX) extensions to the STANAG3910 protocol are fully supported and both protocols are co-resident and accessible by a software switch. The ACX3910-3U-1 incorporates full protocol error injection and detection and allows the reconstruction and replay of previously recorded electrical/ optical STANAG3910 bus traffic to the LS/HS databus with excellent timing accuracy. The ACX3910-3U-1 provides a single 3U slot solution with all the Right on Target Databus Electrical and Optical signals accessible on a single front panel. The module can be used 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.

The ACX3910-3U-1 card uses AIM's 'Next Generation Common Core' (NCC) hardware design utilising multiple RISC processors with 16MB of Global RAM and 64MB of ASP RAM. An Application Support Processor (ASP) that executes the Driver Software onboard minimises the load on the host processing system. The onboard processing and large memory provided allows autonomous operation for real time applications and reduces interaction with the host processing system.

An IRIG-B time encoder/ decoder that provides both sinusoidal and a free wheeling mode is included for time tag synchronisation at the system level for single or multiple ACX3910-3U-1 modules.

Full function driver software is delivered with the ACX3910-3U-1 card in a comprehensive Board Software Package (BSP). The optional PBA.proTM Databus Test and Analysis Tool (for Windows and Linux) can also be purchased for use with the ACX3910-3U-1 card. For legacy PBA-3910/ ParaView Databus Analyser/ Visualiser Software (for Windows) please contact the factory. A special PBA.proTM script package is available for supporting the SAE AS4112 RT Production Test Plan (protocol tests only).
