- Filterable Sequential Buffer
- 256 kB of Dual Port RAM
The GE Fanuc / SBS A429-PCI-8 ARINC PCI Interface provides an 8 channel highly programmable interface over the PCI backplane. Each channel is software configurable for transmit or receive, high or low speed (100 k or 12.5 k bits per second) and ARINC 429 or 575 protocol requirements. Any channel may transmit source lists. The current value table, local monitor and/or global monitor buffers may filter and receive sink data. Either the Label or Label/SDI identify and sort the ARINC data. The on-board DSP controls the flexible data structures, triggers, interrupts, time stamping and data communications on the 429 bus. You can use external triggers for synchronization. The advanced interrupt technology allows real-time event handling by the host processor.
As it receives each 32-bit ARINC 429 data, a 48-bit, 1 µsec time tag time stamps the data word. When placing the receive channel in the monitor mode, a 16-bit status word accompanies the time stamped data. This provides error information regarding each received word.
When a channel is setup as a transmitter, you can send any number of label sequences on each channel. All transmit channels may also be synchronized for simultaneous transmission. Each transmitted ARINC word has an accompanying control word. The control word implements various error injection capabilities. You can transmit the words in scheduled and/or asynchronous priority methods.
SBS bases the A429 interfaces upon high-speed DSP, programmable logic and dual port RAM. This advanced design delivers a highly reliable hardware platform that is feature rich and user friendly. The 256 kB of dual port RAM allows the host system to access setup, receive, monitor, transmit and change data structures, at any time. Definable transmission and receive structures include link list and buffer length sizes. This allows the user to design the data structure optimal for the specific application while maintaining an easy to use environment.
