Data Bus & Network Soultions
DATEL, a subsidiary of DDC, 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.
DDC 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 DDC's Solid-State Power Controller (SSPC) solutions offer dramatic SWaP-C saving advantages over the electromechanical switches, relays, and circuit breakers they replace. DDC'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 is a leading supplier of space qualified SBCs and radiation hardened components. Utilizing multiple radiation hardening techniques, DDC'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'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, power supplies, 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-65565 1553 PCI Mezzanine (PMC) card offers a comprehensive solution for interfacing between embedded PCI and MIL-STD-1553 buses. The conduction cooled version, built to VITA-20 specifications, features a robust design with thermal vias, a heat spreading plane, and copper strips providing a thermal interface to baseboard rails. The card has passed extensive shock and vibration testing. The BU-65565 MIL-STD-1553 card is also available as a convection-cooled card, with a choice of rear-panel, front-panel, or rear- and front-panel input/output.
The BU-65565 includes one to four channels of DDC's field-proven, industry standard Enhanced Mini-ACE. This advanced 1553 bus controller architecture provides a high degree of flexibility and autonomy: improving message scheduling control; minimizing host overhead for asynchronous message insertion; and facilitating bulk data transfers and double buffering, message retry and bus switching strategies, and data logging and fault reporting. In addition, the 1553 PMC card's remote terminal architecture meets all common MIL-STD-1553 protocols. RT data buffering and interrupt options offer robust support for synchronous and asynchronous messaging while ensuring data sample consistency and supporting bulk data transfers.
Free BU-69090 software with a library supports all modes of operation, VxWorks and Linux device drivers (including source code), and an offline development environment.
