Sycos ARINC 429 PMC Transmitter/Receiver module offers the user up to 16 Transmitter and 16 Receiver channels on a single width PMC module.


Each channel is supported with a pair of Cyclic-Data-Buffers each of which are 1k deep and 32bits wide configured as follows:


Receive Cyclic-Data-Buffers:


Transmit Cyclic-Data-Buffers:


Deeper buffers are available as an option.


ARINC Input/Output is via the backplane and also via a 68 pin SCSI connector on the PMC module faceplate. Provision is made for a Connector Identification Code to be read from the connector.


ARINC 575 is software selectable per channel.


Firmware options are available to enhance the functionality of the product to realise an extremely sophisticated simulation and testing facility. Refer to the product data sheet for details.


Other PMC modules supporting ARINC-575 and the six wire buses of ARINC-561, 568, 571 and 582 are available.


The module provides configuration registers which allow the host to:

- Automatically identify the module and its revision status

- Identify connector cables connected to the card

- Assign address space for the card's data buffer memory and registers.   (Plug-in and Play)

- Control and monitor the PCI bus interface to the card

- Read module interrupt configuration as assigned by the POST   software as it initialises and configures the system


Additional features designed into the module are:

- Independent Cyclic-Data-Buffer per channel, each with a capacity for   1k x 4 byte words

- Direct access to the Cyclic Data Buffer Read / Write Pointers

- PCI interrupts on Module Events

- Direct access to Module registers and application memory

- Interface compatible with PCI Local bus Specification, revision 2.1,   June 1995


The PMC module is designed to be used in a "Plug-in and Play" environment which is made possible, not only by the choice of PCI interface, but also by the provision of various identification and module present registers. These include:

- Device ID

- Vendor ID

- Subsystem ID

- Subsystem Vendor ID

- Connector ID / Present

- Module ID

Using these registers the host can detect the module presence, determine if this is consistent with system requirements and respond accordingly by configuring the system or reporting system deficiencies.
