DDC Launches Rugged Avionics Interface Computer To Support High Density Multi-I/O Data Networking

Bohemia, New York (May 5, 2015) Data Device Corporation (DDC), the leader in multi-protocol avionics data bus connectivity solutions introduces its new Rugged Avionics Interface Computer. Ideal for both system upgrades and new systems, DDC’s Rugged Avionics Computer provides a flexible and scalable platform that supports a wide range of Ethernet, MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429, ARINC 717, CANbus 2.0/ARINC 825, RS-232/422/485 and Avionics/Digital Discrete I/O data network communications. The system combines industry leading performance from Intel’s embedded computing architecture and the I/O flexibility of DDC’s High Density Multi-Protocol XMC module, to deliver unmatched avionics connectivity in a small form factor, deployable, rugged enclosure.

System Performance

  • Scalable processing from an Intel® Atom™ Bay Trail processor to an Intel Core i3, i5, or i7 dual or quad core processors
  • Dual Gigabit Ethernet interfaces for network connectivity and bridging to 1553 or 429

Avionics Functionality Enabled by the Cadre of DDC Interface Cards

  For example: Integrating DDC’s Multi-I/O XMC (BU-67118) provides up to…
