PXIe Avionics Interface Cards
Supplier: Astronics Ballard Technology
Technology type: PXI / PXIe
These high performance PCI Express (PXIe) cards are designed for use in multi-slot PXIe and CompactPCI Express test systems. These systems are able to interface with multiple avionics databuses for testing, validating and simulating commercial and military avionics equipment and systems. Using interchangeable modules, a variety of avionics I/O functionality can be added to the card at the point of ordering. OmniBus II cards can accept a maximum of two modules, and each module has its own circuitry to handle the channels and protocols associated with it.

OmniBus II PXIe at a glance
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 3U size and include sixteen TTL level input/output discretes and IRIG time synchronisation/generation. User software can indicate status by controlling the two LEDs.
