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 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-65577/78Cx is a one to four channel MIL-STD-1553 card that provides new levels of performance and flexibility for PC/104-Plus (BU-65578C) or PCI-104 (BU-65577C) systems that interface to a MIL-STD-1553 data bus. The card uses DDCs Extended Enhanced Mini-ACE® (E2MA) architecture, which is API compatible with Enhanced Mini-ACE software. Standard features include 2MB of RAM per channel, 48-bit message time tagging, IRIG-B time stamp input, IRIG-106 Chapter 10 format, transformer or direct coupling, triggers, extensive BC & RT frame structures, error detection, RT Status Bit and Mode Code responses, and advanced Bus Controller functionality.
Each 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 card includes the MIL-STD-1553 Enhanced Mini-ACE (EMACE) Plus C Software Development Kit (SDK) and drivers to support all modes of operation for Linux, VxWorks and Windows 2000/XP, including source code samples and detailed documentation. The SDK allows users to develop source code to simulate, monitor, or troubleshoot 1553 data buses with support for the latest versions of operating systems including VxWorks 6, Linux 2.6, and Windows 2000/XP. This SDK allows 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.
The BU-65577/8Cx is designed for harsh environments and can be used in either conduction or convection cooled applications. Its rugged construction makes it ideal for use in flight data recorders, displays, ground vehicles, mission computers, and avionics labs.
