Occupying a single slot in a VME chassis, the Sy429VME-T16 card offers easy to use,
high performance, VME interfacing to 2 Rx and 16 Tx ARINC-429 channels. The card
is ARINC-429 and ARINC-575 compatible. The 32-bit VME version is shown, but the original
16-bit data version is also available.
Each transmit and receive channel is individually software configured by writing
data to a control register. This provides a choice of 125 separate data rates between
3.9k and 167k bits/second.
The card is programmed by the host processor via a few directly addressable control
registers. Once set up, the host processor need only write transmit data to the board
and, when required, read received data from a 2k ARINC word deep FIFO buffer.
Errors of the following type can be inserted into transmissions:
- Parity error
- Gap error
- +/- 1 bit error
