TREVOSE, Pa., 15 Dec. 2015. AIM USA in Trevose, Pa., is introducing the AIM SmartCable to interface with ARINC 429 avionics databus analyzer and data loader applications.

The first in the AIM SmartCable cable and connector family is the ASC429 for ARINC 429 testing, designed to offer USB based interface solution operating on one USB 2.0 port (or higher). The low-power hardware design enables a half-pocket sized interface for ARINC 429 test, simulation, monitoring and data loading applications.

Data bus protocol-related real-time capabilities over the USB interface come from having the necessary hardware, firmware and processing resources directly integrated within the almost standard D-Sub connector sized housing. Additional processing capability is offered by the use of a dual-processor system-on-chip device (SOC) inside the ASC.

The ASC429-x comes with 4Tx/8Rx or 2Tx/4Rx channels with software programmable for low rate and high rate operation. The SOC of the AIM SmartCable has access to 128 megabytes of Global RAM and boot up flash memory. Furthermore the ASC429 modules are API compatible to the existing AIM ARINC 429 product portfolio.
