New Version of DDC Mezzanine Card Offers a Programmable Option for Interfacing with ARINC 429 Data Buses

Bohemia, New York (May , 2001)
Data Device Corporation announces the further proliferation of the DD-42916C1 mezzanine card with the DD-4291613, which interfaces with ARINC 429 PCI data buses. The DD-4291613 implements an ARINC 429 interface and is designed to analyze and simulate data to and from electronic equipment and systems in commercial airlines and military avionics via the widely used PCI format.

The flexibility the DD-42916l3 provides in a testing and simulation environment is being extremely well received by our customers," noted Mike Hegarty, Data Bus Technologies Product Marketing Manager at DDC. "We realize that in ground support and on-board data
acquisition applications, operators don't necessarily know beforehand how many transmit/receive channels will be needed. With the DD-4291613. they can program each channel independently to either transmit or rece~e.

The DD-4291613 provides 16 independently programmable receive/transmit channels that can perform high- or low-speed operations. It also supports high-speed data rates on all channels, simultaneously; engl.nee.nng- unit conversion; and wraparound self-testing for each channel. Requiring only a single PCI slot, all wiring connections to the DD-4291613 are made via a locking connector panel.

An intuitive graphical user interface simplifies fast bus traffic simulation and monitoring. The GUI operates on Windows 95/98/NT/2000. DDC includes a programmer's toolbox with C, LabView, and LabWindows libraries and drivers for Windows 95/98/NTI2000 and LINUX at no
extra charge.

Data Device is accepting orders for the DD-4291613. A fixed-channel PCI card, as well as PMC and ISA versions
of the DD-42916C1 mezzanine card, is also available.

Data Device Corporation is an international leader in high-reliability data conversion interface components and subsystems for military and commercial applications. Established in 1964 with the introduction of the first synchro-to-digital module, DDC's design and manufacturing facility is located in Bohemia, New York.
