PCI-ARTIC-4T4R        RS232/422 2T-2R


BMC's PCI –ARTIC-4T4R provides new levels of performance and flexibility for ARINC 429/419/572/575/642/615/717… 2 wires protocols for PCI form factors.

Available in a range of configurations to match your needs, the intelligent PCI-ARTIC provide complete, integrated databus functionality for ARINC 429 and related avionics protocols. The PCI-ARTIC supports maximum data throughput on all channels while providing on-board message scheduling, label filtering, multiple buffering options, time-tagging,.

PCI-ARTIC-4T4R includes an API (Application Programming Interface) software that reduces application development time.


Standard features include 32 Kbyte of RAM, 32-bit message time-tagging, triggers, extensive structures. On-board Built-in-Test. The PCI-ARTIC- Bus Monitor provides 4000 BUFFERS with channel and 32 bit high resolution timetag  and unparalleled monitoring of fully loaded buses.

Multi-function Interfaces

PCI-ARTIC-4T4R multi-function interfaces are easily software programmable to supports maximum data throughput on all channels simultaneously, operates with 4 Receivers and 4 transmitters and Bus Monitor functionality.


BAUD RATE Interfaces

The PCI-ARTIC-429 interfaces have all the features and functionality to operate with any transmit/receive rate ranging from 100Hz to 1 Mega bit.



The ARTIC API is provided in source code, along with integrated support for Windows XP, 2000, Me, NT, 95, 98.
