BMC's PMC-UADI  provides new levels of performance and flexibility for multiple avionics communications  system. Available in commercial and ruggedized versions, includes an API (Application Programming Interface) software library that reduces application development time.


Standard 1553 features 32-bit message time-tagging, triggers, extensive BC & RT link-list structures, error injection and detection, automatic/manual RT Status Bit, Mode Code responses, advanced BC functionality, on-board Built-in-Test Bus, transformer & direct coupling, hardwired RT address. With the highest speed encoder/decoder in the industr

Available in a range of configurations to match your needs, the intelligent PCI-UADI provide complete, integrated databus functionality for ARINCs and related avionics protocols. The PCI UADI supports maximum data throughput on all channels while providing on-board message scheduling, label filtering, multiple buffering options, time-tagging,.

ARINC 573/717

The PMC-UADI offers two transmit and two receive ARINC 717 channels. Each ARINC 717 channel is independently configurable through software for Harvard biphase operation.


Multi-function Interfaces

PCI-UADI  multi-function interfaces are easily software configured to operate with simultaneous 1553 Bus Controller, Remote Terminals and Bus Monitor functionality. The  RS232 and ARINC section supports maximum data throughput on all channels simultaneously, operates with  independent receivers (2) and transmitters (2).


Multi-function 1553

The PMC-UADI interfaces have all the features and functionality of the multi-function versions, but with only one operational mode enabled at a time. Each interface can emulate either a Bus Controller (BC), Remote Terminal (RT) or Bus Monitor (BM) and concurrent modes BCRT, BCBM and RTBM.


Multi-function ARINC and RS232

The CPCI-UADI us easily software programmable to supports maximum data throughput on all channels simultaneously, operates with independent receivers and transmitters.
