Condor Engineering, part of GE Fanuc Embedded Systems, a unit of GE Industrial, has released EPMC-1553, its new, 8-channel, high-density PMC card for MIL-STD-1553B Notice II, available in commercial, ruggedised and conduction-cooled configurations.
Designed specifically for embedded applications, Condor’s new EPMC-1553 provides high levels of performance, flexibility and interface density for MIL-STD-1553B in the PMC (PCI Mezzanine Card) form factor.
Available in configurations with 1, 2, 4 or 8 dual-redundant, fully compliant 1553B/1760 interface channels, the EPMC from Metromatics provides 128 Kbytes of RAM per channel, along with 8 bi-directional avionics-level and 8 RS-485 differential discretes.
All channels are multi-function, supporting simultaneous operation of a Bus Controller (BC), (1 or 31) Remote Terminals (RT), and Bus Monitoring (BM). An IRIG-B receiver/generator option is available.
The Condor EPMC-1553 card is designed to industry standard conduction-cooled specifications, and is also available in commercial and extended temperature configurations.
The high channel count density and integrated discretes allow the system designer to reduce the overall system footprint (slot count) while reducing power consumption.
I/O connections are available from either the front bezel or via the P14 connector. Also included with the EPMC-1553 is CORE-API, a flexible, easy-to-port API provided in source code.
Board support packages for Windows XP, 2000, Me, NT, 98, 95, and VxWorks are provided
