MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., 18 May 2010. Actel Corp. in Mountain View, Calif., is introducing a development to help avionics designers evaluate the functionality of the Actel Core429 ARINC 429 avionics databus interface IP core packaged on a field-programmable gate array (FPGA).

The Core429 Development Kit combines a Fusion Advanced Development Kit, an IP daughter card, and a Core429 daughter card, as well as ARINC 429 software examples, Core429 programming files, ARINC 429 physical connections, and documentation.

The kit gives access to a self-contained benchtop four-channel ARINC 429 bus evaluation system based on Actel's firm-error immune flash Fusion mixed-signal FPGA, as well as control of an ARINC 429 evaluation system that is compliant with the ARINC 429-16 specification.

Designers can use the files provided with the Core429 Development Kit to program the M1AFS1500-FG484 device in the Fusion Advanced Development Kit to create an ARINC platform with four transmit channels and four receive channels.

The Core429 daughter card has ARINC 429 physical connections and is plugged directly onto an IP-DC-SA IP daughter card, which provides a bridge to the Fusion Advanced Development Kit. For more information contact Actel online at www.actel.com.
