Data Connectivity


DDC has a wide assortment of quality ARINC 429 embedded and lab grade boards, LRUs, and components, to serve your data conversion and data interface needs. DDC's ARINC 429 components ensure the accurate and reliable transfer of flight-critical data. Our 429 interfaces support data bus development, validation, and the transfer of flight-critical data aboard commercial aerospace platforms.


DDC has been awarded a contract by The Boeing Company to provide the ARINC 629 Plastic Optical Converter (APOC) for use on the Boeing 777X. The APOC is a Line Replaceable Unit (LRU) that contains an array of Optical Media Converters (OMCs) that convert electrical ARINC 629 signals from each system LRU into optical signals that can communicate on a Passive Optical Network (PON) using Plastic Optical Fiber (POF).
