New OmniBus II Avionics Test and Simulation Products

Astronics Ballard Technology

OmniBus II is the next-generation of Ballard's popular OmniBus product line. It is a family of products that enable computers and networks to interface with multiple avionics databuses for testing, validating and simulating commercial and military avionics equipment and systems.

The high-density modular design of the OmniBus family provides flexibility that enables the user to select from many protocol, platform, and channel count combinations to tailor the system to their specific needs.

New features include:

  • Our latest 6th generation protocol engines for faster I/O and processing capabilities
  • Enhanced timing synchronization and control features
  • New protocol modules with advanced test and simulation capabilities

Available Protocols & I/O

MIL-STD-1553
ARINC 429
ARINC 708
ARINC 717
CSDB
Serial
Discrete I/O
IRIG A/B PWM and AM

Platforms for the OmniBus II family include:

OmnibusBox II

The next generation appliance for databus test and simulation in a lab environment. It can run tethered (controlled by other computers through USB or Ethernet) or stand-alone (automatically executing your application at power-on).

OmniBus II Interfaces

Used in multi-slot PXI Express and Express test systems, enabling them to interface with multiple avionics databuses for testing, validating and simulating commercial and military avionics equipment and systems.

Omnibus II PCIe Interfaces

Enables computers and networks to interface with multiple avionics databuses for testing, validating and simulating commercial and military avionics equipment and systems.
