Discontinued Product. Please contact the factory for the latest replacement.


Part Number(s): DD-42916i3-300
Package: PCI Card
Lead Free Information: B

The DD-42916I3-300 is a DD-42916C1-300 PMC ARINC 429 card on a PCI carrier, which provides a PCI interface to an ARINC 429 data bus. The ARINC card contains a high performance processor used for data processing, time stamping, and engineering unit conversion. The DD-42916I3-300 efficiently transfers ARINC 429 data via dual port RAM accessed by both the host computer and the card.

DD-42916I3-300 software supports all modes of operation and includes 'C', LabVIEW and LabVIEW Real-Time, and LabWindows/CVI programming libraries. An optional Commercial Avionics Utilities Suite includes an ARINC 429 Data Bus Analyzer and an ARINC 615 Data Loader. Optional dataSIMS software provides powerful monitoring, extensive post analysis capabilities, and simulation capability.

With 16 programmable ARINC-429 receive/transmit channels, high/low speed operation, and engineering unit conversion; the DD-42916I3-300 is well suited to all types of ground support work, including development and manufacturing, testing, and on-board data acquisition. The DD-42916I3-300 ARINC 429 card equips LRU developers with easy access for simulating and testing new systems prior to use with actual flight systems. It can also be used by avionics maintenance and validation teams to perform end-item testing in the laboratory and onboard testing via portable PC’s.
