Multiprotocol interface for PCI Express-compatible systems
The EXC-4000PCIe/xx is a multiprotocol interface for PCI Express-compatible systems. Excalibur Systems intended the card for the PCI Express bus; it supports as many as four dual-redundant 1553 channels using the M4K1553Px(S) module. The EXC-4000PCIe/xx interface is compatible with all common variations of MIL-STD-1553A and B and can be either multifunction or single-function.
Under the multifunction mode of the EXC-4000PCIe/xx, each channel using the M4K1553Px module operates simultaneously as a bus controller and/or multiple (as many as 32) remote terminals, or as a triggerable bus monitor. In addition, error injection (BC and RT modes) and error detection (all modes) are supported on each channel. In the single function, each channel using the M4K1553PxS (RT validated) module operates either as a bus controller, remote terminal, or bus monitor. The EXC-4000PCIe/xx is supplied with C drivers (including source code) and Merlin+ Windows software and may be used with Exalt, Excalibur’s Analysis and Laboratory Tools, a Windows monitoring application. A mating connector is provided for I/O connection.
