Kfar Sava, Israel - February 16, 2012: Sital Technology announces the launch of its new PMC and Compact PCI Hyperboard, a robust and efficient platform for avionics communication bus applications.
PMC HyperBoard is a PCI Mezzanine Card, PMC-compatible, multi-standard board that contains up to eight channels of Mil-Std-1553. It is compatible with Mil-Std-1553B and Mil-Std-1760 and its channels can be configured independently to work with H009 and WB-194 in conjunction with 1553. Other protocols, like French DigiBus, are also available upon request.
The PMC HyperBoard is based on Sital's proven 1553, H009 and WB-194 (WMUX) IP cores, loaded into an FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) component and discrete components transceivers. The board can be programmed by Sital, allowing the flexibility to support various configurations and protocols using the exact same hardware. It includes eight Generic I/O pins, that can be used as RS-485/RS-422, ARINC-429 (2 transmit and 2 receive channels) or eight avionics I/O ports. The board also includes eight digital I/Os and IRIG-B time-tag input and output channels.
PMC HyperBoard can be used for on-board avionics systems and for lab testing equipment. The standard interface board is software-compatible with DDC® Enhanced MiniACE® components and architecture, enabling fast and easy integration with existing or new systems. The tester version is provided with capabilities like RT Simulation, Multi-RT, Error Injection and more. This version is also available in Compact PCI (cPCI) form-factor.
The board is provided with software drivers for Windows and Linux along with high-level API and a comprehensive GUI (Graphical User Interface) to ease application development for controlling the board, generating bus traffic and monitoring and emulating a real bus environment.
"The PMC HyperBoard provides our customers with a common and complete environment for application developers who can now create applications for 1553, WB-194 and other standards using the same board" declared Duli Yariv, VP of Marketing. "The resulting applications benefit from the robustness, low power consumption and low heat dissipation of the board" he added.
PMC HyperBoard joins the Sital family of advanced communication bus products for a wide variety of applications.
