SALT LAKE CITY, 9 Jan. 2008. Subsystems designers at Parvus Corp. in Salt Lake City needed a MIL-STD-1553 avionics data interface for a U.S. Navy aircraft upgrade program. They found their solution from Data Device Corp. (DDC) in Bohemia, N.Y.
Parvus is choosing the DDC MIL-STD-1553 PC/104-Plus card for use in applications that require a 1553 interface. The specific aircraft program was not named.
The DDC PC/104-Plus card provides as many as four dual-redundant 1553 channels, five user- programmable digital discrete I/Os, selectable external or internal time-tag clock, and an IRIG-B time synchronization input.
The card has an intelligent hardware offload engine that dramatically reduces PCI bus and host CPU utilization, while storing 1553 Monitor data in a convenient and portable IRIG-106 Chapter 10 file format.
"We have selected DDC's PC/104-Plus cards for use in our embedded systems that require a MIL-STD-1553 data bus due to the product's high quality and proven reliability along with DDC's solid reputation for excellent support," says Mike Southworth, Parvus Corp. marketing director.
Parvus also has pre-qualified the card as an integration option for Parvus's DuraCOR 810 mission processor platform, which is going into several U.S. military programs. For more information contact Parvus online at www.parvus.com, or DDC at www.ddc-web.com.
