BOHEMIA, N.Y., 14 Sept. 2010. Officials of the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in Washington needed MIL-STD-1553PCI Expressavionics databus interface cards for NASA's System Integration and Software Development Labs to support the Ares-1 launch vehicle. They found their solution from Data Device Corp. (DDC) in Bohemia, N.Y.
Ares-1 is the crew launch vehicle being developed by NASA as a component of the Constellation program. DDC will provide the BU-67106K MIL-STD-1553 PCI Express card. The BU-67106K PCI Express card is built on DDC's AceXtreme 1553 core, which has as many as four dual redundant MIL-STD-1553 channels operating in bus controller or Multi-RT (0 to 31) modes, with a concurrent bus monitor; software configurable bus coupling and termination options; native PCI-Express design; message signaled interrupt support; discrete I/O; and IRIG-B time code and time tag clock input and output.
