Occupying a single slot in a VME chassis, the Sy429VME-T16 card offers easy to use, high performance, VME interfacing to 2 Rx and 16 Tx ARINC-429 channels. The card is ARINC-429 and ARINC-575 compatible. The 32-bit VME version is shown, but the original 16-bit data version is also available.
Each transmit and receive channel is individually software configured by writing data to a control register. This provides a choice of 125 separate data rates between 3.9k and 167k bits/second.
The card is programmed by the host processor via a few directly addressable control registers. Once set up, the host processor need only write transmit data to the board and, when required, read received data from a 2k ARINC word deep FIFO buffer.
