MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429 & Ethernet Protocol Conversion

DDC offers convenient solutions to convert MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429, and Ethernet protocol in any direction, in real-time, without a host computer, enabling seamless and cost saving multi-protocol connectivity for test applications.


Avionics Interface Computer

Three modes of operation provide complete bridging capability for lab environments.

  • Remote Access Mode uses Ethernet as a virtual backplane between applications running on a host computer and 1553/429 interfaces located within the AIC, eliminating the need and cost of long cabling to onboard 1553/429 connections from the test lab.
  • Protocol Conversion Mode uses bridging SDK, which allows users to easily create embedded software on the AIC that will autonomously forward data between MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429, and Ethernet interfaces.
  • Standalone Mode allows the AIC to operate as a user programmable computer system.


Multi-Protocol Data Bus Boards

  • Multi-I/O (1553, 429, Serial, Discrete) - Test multiple protocols with one card
  • MIL-STD-1553 Multi-Function (BC + Multi-RT + MT) - Simplifies testing and saves procurement and assembly costs!
  • IRIG-B and External Time Clock - Synchronize all data to a common time source
  • IRIG-106 Chapter 10 - Records 1553 data in standard telemetry format
  • Error Injection - Send erroneous bus traffic to test for incorrect behavior
  • 1553 Reconstruction Mode - Record and playback bus traffic to reproduce unique system failures
  • Advanced Triggering - Easy-to-use event notification via software or external pins
  • Common API - Enables software reuse and prototyping
