DDC's field proven technology is integrated into the world's most advanced civil aerospace, defense, industrial and space applications.
Data Device Corporation (DDC) is a world leader in the design and manufacture of high-reliability Connectivity solutions (Data Networking Components to Processor Based Subsystems) for aerospace, defense, space, and industrial applications.
DDC is a market leader in high-reliability data bus networking solutions, including sub-systems, boards, components, and software for the defense, civil aerospace, and space markets. DDC provides data bus solutions for MIL-STD-1553/1760, ARINC 429/717, Fibre Channel, Ethernet, CANbus, Serial I/O, and other protocols.
Data Bus & Network Soultions
DATEL, a subsidiary of PDC, was established in 1970 and has been a long time leader in providing high precision data acquisition components, including data converters, power supplies, DC-DC converters, and digital panel meters.
PDC offers proven smart power control and power conversion solutions that enable land, sea, air, and space vehicle systems the ability to control and distribute raw and conditioned power, more efficiently and reliably. Power management with PDC's Solid-State Power Controller (SSPC) solutions offer dramatic SWaP-C saving advantages over the electromechanical switches, relays, and circuit breakers they replace. PDC's power conversion and supply solutions, offering greater than 92% efficiency, provide high quality conditioned power in a space saving, reliable, and field-proven, "fit and forget" design.
PDC is a leader in high reliability motor control and synchro/resolver motion feedback solutions for defense, civil aerospace, space, and industrial applications. DDC's motor control solutions deliver high reliability postion, torque and speed control, while our synchro/resolver motion feedback solutions provide high accuracy positioning, direction and speed data for high reliability applications.
Motion Control Solutions
DDC is a leader in high reliability transformer, magnetic and cable assembly solutions for the aerospace, defense, and space industries, with Beta Transformer and North Hills brands offering field proven magnetics solutions for the most demanding environments, including extreme temperature, shock, vibration, dust, fluid, and radiation.
Transformer & Magnetic Soultions
DDC and PDC are leading suppliers of space qualified SBCs and radiation hardened components. Utilizing multiple radiation hardening techniques, DDC and PDC's space solutions incorporate one or more of the following elements: RAD-PAK® technology, Rad Hard by Design, Triple Mode Redundancy (TMR), and Error-Correction Codes (ECC). DDC and PDC's space-qualified and field proven solutions are engineered for space’s extreme environmental requirements, while reducing space, weight, and power consumption, along with total cost of ownership.
Satellites & Space Systems
DDC’s core competencies and unique suite of capabilities for the production of custom solutions span every stage of development including electrical design, mechanical design, test engineering, process engineering, manufacturing, and product assurance. DDC is uniquely qualified to support a wide range of application requirements and technologies based upon our decades of experience in analog and digital microelectronics, magnetics, radiation mitigation technology and top quality certifications for AS9100 Rev C, ISO 9001:2008, EN9100, JIS Q9100 and through the DLA MIL-PRF-38534.
The BU-65578F/M is a PMC card that provides up to eight dual-redundant MIL-STD-1553 channels operating in BC, RT, MT, or combined RT/MT modes. The card also contains up to eight digital discrete I/Os, eight avionics (+35V) discrete I/Os, an IRIG-B time code input, an IRIG-B time code output/generator, an external time tag input, and an external time tag clock output.
Each 1553 channel uses DDCs Extended Enhanced Mini-ACE® (E2MA) architecture which is fully backwards API compatible with DDCs industry standard, field proven, Enhanced Mini-ACE. The card includes the MIL-STD-1553 Enhanced Mini-ACE PLUS C Software Development Kit (SDK) with drivers for VxWorks, Linux, and Windows 2000/XP. These SDKs allow you to quickly integrate DDCs 1553 cards into your 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.
Each 1553 channel is individually configurable as a Bus Controller (BC), Remote Terminal (RT), Bus Monitor (MT) or combined RT Monitor. The advanced BC architecture provides a high degree of flexibility and autonomy by improving message schedule control, minimizing host overhead for asynchronous message insertion, facilitating bulk data transfers, double buffering, message retry, bus switching strategies, data logging, and fault reporting. The RT architecture provides flexibility in meeting all MIL-STD-1553B protocols. The card has an intelligent hardware offload DMA architecture 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 DDCs cards to be used with digital flight data recorders.
The BU-65578F/M is designed for harsh environments and can be used in either conduction or convection cooled applications. The card is available with front panel I/O or rear I/O. The cards rugged construction and ability to operate from -40°C to +85°C on the thermal rail make it ideal for use in flight data recorders, display applications, mission computers, embedded black boxes, and avionics labs.
