Versatile XMC Card for RS485 Serial Interfaces:
AIM’s brand new RS485 Serial Interface is a versatile XMC card with 12 independent channels designed for handling a customer specific application such as aircraft flight and engine control systems utilizing proprietary bus protocols.
Features include a COTS RS485 transceiver frontend capable of full and half duplex operation at data rates up to 10 MBPS.
This PCIe based hardware platform has an FPGA, two ARM processors and memory to support custom appliactions with specific bus protocols and data encoding variants implemented by simple firmware loads to the onboard FPGA and ARM processors.
One such custom application is the public ‘Engine Area Distributed Interconnect Network’ (EADIN), a ‘proposed serial communication bus’ of the Distributed Engine Control Working Group > (DECWG)
An IRIG-B time stamping capability covers typical synchronization needs in test and simulation environment. A software device driver and API support for Windows and LINUX platforms address software requirements for test and simulation applications.
