Sycos can offer CompactPCI solutions through the use of it’s PMC range of cards.
Currently available is an Arinc-629 interface that offers a transmitter and full
bus monitor in a single width PMC. The design is based upon a well established product
from Sycos’ VMEbus cards, with XPP, RPP and switchable data buffers implemented in
embedded SRAM and 16 dedicated SRAM Cyclic Buffers for 32-bit data loads from/to
PCI bus implemented in 256Kbytes of fast SRAM.
Arinc-629 connection, +/-15v supply and Pseudo Bus connection are through LEMO connectors
on the front panel. Other I/Os are routed to the PMC I/O connector.
One Sy629PMC-BPM card can be installed on a 3U size cPCI-PMC carrier card, or two
on a 6U size cPCI-PMC carrier card. Products are supplied with Windows DLL and sample
The Sy629cPCI-M-CMC card provides the equivalent of one Arinc-629 bus with 5 stub
cable connections. The card requires no configuration. Although the card is mechanically
compliant to PMC, it does not communicate with PCI bus but simply exploits the power
supplies provided on the PMC connectors. Provision is made to cascade cards to extend
the number of stub cable connections to 10, 15, 20 etc. This card is particularly
effective in systems that support Boeing 777 full flight simulators, where multiple
buses and many stub cable connections are required.
Two further PMC products are in development:
fault generation and detection (firmware upgrade to Sy629PMC-BPM card)
Multi-Terminal-Emulation. Up to 120 ARINC-629 Terminals in a single PMC module.
