DDC Announces New Software Development Kits and IRIG-106 Chapter 10 Support for MIL-STD-1553 PC/104-Plus Card

Bohemia, New York (February 15, 2008) Data Device Corporation (DDC) introduces newly enhanced Software Development Kits (SDK) for MIL-STD-1553 PC/104-Plus and PCI-104 cards. The SDK allows users to develop source code to simulate, monitor, or troubleshoot 1553 data buses with support for the latest versions of operating systems including VxWorks® 6, Linux® 2.6, and Windows® 2000/XP. This SDK allows users to quickly integrate DDC’s 1553 cards into their “C” source code applications. A common SDK exists across all operating systems allowing the programmer portability across different platforms. The easy-to-use high-level functions abstract all low-level hardware accesses and memory allocation such that specific hardware knowledge is not required.

The BU-65578C PC/104-Plus card provides up to four dual redundant MIL-STD-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. “Storing data in the industry standard IRIG-106 Chapter 10 file format allows DDC’s cards to be used as a turnkey solution for digital flight data recorders”, states Mike Hegarty, DDC’s MIL-STD-1553 Marketing Manager.
