BOHEMIA, NY, 6 Oct. 2012. North Atlantic Industries (NAI) has announced the availability of their integrated, compact, nano-sized subsystem with I/O capabilities that connects to existing platform Ethernet networks, making data available to any system on the network. The nano interface unit (NIU1) easily adds sensor data acquisition, distribution and communication interfaces to mission computers without chassis and backplane redesign, for use in aerospace and military embedded systems.
Leveraging NAI’s field-proven, unique modular architecture, the NIU1 supports a wide selection of different intelligent I/O, motion simulation/measurement and communications functions such as: A/D, D/A, TTL, RTD; Discrete I/O; Differential Transceiver, Synchro/Resolver/LVDT/RVDT Measurement, Simulation and Excitation; Strain Gage; Encoder; Dual Channel Dual Redundant BC/RT/MT MIL-STD-1553; high speed Sync/Async RS232/422/423/485; ARINC 429/575 and CANBus. This approach provides a simple integration effort for dedicated I/O interface capability to existing or new applications, targeting specific interfacing requirements and provides a complete I/O function subsystem. In addition, Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) is standard on the NIU1, making it easy to integrate where 28 Vdc power isn’t readily available.
The NIU1 offers independent (pre-processed) I/O functionality targeted to specific data acquisition/control areas, additional capabilities, technology insertion, and sensor interfacing to existing fielded applications, and minimal integration risk based on current deployed technologies.
