OmniBus® II PCIe Databus Interface Cards

Manufacturer's part number :

OmniBus® II PCIe

Manufacturer Ballard

Astronics Ballard Technology

Description :

The OmniBus II PCIe card enables computers and networks to interface with multiple avionics databuses for testing, validating and simulating commercial and military avionics equipment and systems. It is highly configurable and includes two internal Cores that can be populated with a variety of databus protocols and discrete I/O modules. The OmniBus II PCIe is the next-generation of Astronics Ballard Technology's popular OmniBus product with faster I/O and processing capabilities. With the newest advanced set of MIL-STD-1553 and ARINC 429 modules, users can verify wave form compatibilities, test functions of bus shorts and opens, and—when combined with our CoPilot® software—perform lab, production and flight test verification and simulation right out of the box. Readily available as Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) products, the PCIe interface is perfect for challenging simulation, test, interface, and data recording applications.

Hardware - OmniBus II modules used on this card feature the latest 6th generation protocol engines and bus mastering to yield high performance. Power is obtained from the backplane bus—no supplemental power is needed. All cards are standard half size and include sixteen TTL level input/output discrete and IRIG time synchronization/generation. User software can indicate status by controlling the two LEDs.
