RAR-cPCI Interface

RoHS high density intelligent ARINC interface for CompactPCI

High density CompactPCI interface for simulation, test and deployment

Available in a range of configurations to match your needs, the RAR-cPCI provides complete, integrated databus functionality for ARINC 429, ARINC 575 and selected 2-wire, 32-bit protocols in a CompactPCI form factor. It supports maximum data throughput on all channels while providing on-board message scheduling, label filtering, multiple buffering options, time-tagging, and error detection. It also supports 16 avionics-level I/O discretes, an IRIG-B receiver (AM or DC/TTL) and an IRIG generator (DC/TTL), with support for either 33 MHz or 66 MHz 32-bit CompactPCI, PXI, or PXI Express Hybrid chassis slots. Ruggedized configurations with extended operating temperatures are optional.

Multiple channel configurations provide optimum application flexibility

The RAR-cPCI supports up to 32 ARINC 429 channels, (16 receivers and 16 transmitters), and is available in various ARINC 429 channel counts.  Several configurations offer combinations of ARINC 429 channels along with ARINC 717/573 Dual-Mode functionality. Dual-Mode functionality programmatically supports either HBP (Harvard Bi-Phase) or BPRZ (Bi- Polar Return to Zero) across a very wide range of Bit Rate/ Sub-frame combinations.

Software tools minimize integration effort, shorten time to implementation

Abaco Systems’ software tools and solutions significantly reduce the time required to integrate ARINC 429 and various avionics protocols into your application. Included with the RAR-cPCI is our flexible, high-level API (Application Programming Interface) support for Windows® 7, 8, 8.1, 10, Server 2012 R1/R2, Vista, XP (32-bit/64-bit), Linux, and VxWorks®. This powerful API supports multiple cards, and is compatible with Abaco Systems’ API support on PCI, PCI Experss, PC/104-Plus, Express Card, PMC, and XMC platforms. Optional software includes support for LabVIEW and LabVIEW Real-Time, and BusTools/ARINC, our flexible, Windows-based GUI Analyzer for ARINC 429 analysis, simulation and data logging.
