EPMC-1553 PMC card for military commercial & extended temperature embedded applications

AZDEL : 14 September, 2007  (Company News)
Condor Engineering, now part of GE Fanuc Embedded Systems, a unit of GE Industrial, has announced the release of the EPMC-1553, its new, 8-channel, high-density PMC card for MIL-STD-1553B Notice II, available in commercial, ruggedized and conduction-cooled configurations. Designed specifically for embedded applications, Condor's new EPMC-1553 provides the highest levels of performance, flexibility and interface density for MIL-STD-1553B in the PMC (PCI Mezzanine Card) form factor.
Available in configurations with 1, 2, 4 or 8 dual-redundant, fully compliant 1553B/1760 interface channels, the EPMC provides 128 Kbytes of RAM per channel, along with 8 bi-directional avionics-level and 8 RS-485 differential discretes. All channels are multi-function, supporting simultaneous operation of a Bus Controller, (1 or 31) Remote Terminals, and Bus Monitoring. An IRIG-B Receiver/Generator option is available.

'The EPMC allows our customers to increase valuable I/O space while providing higher mean-time-between-failure rates,' said Bill Schuh, Director of Military Avionics for Condor Engineering. 'The EPMC-1553 utilizes Condor's exclusive, RT-Validated, CORE-1553 technology which enables our industry-leading channel count density. The EPMC also offers BC triggers allowing increased hardware functionality.'

The Condor EPMC-1553 card is designed to industry standard conduction-cooled specifications, and is also available in commercial and extended temperature configurations. The high channel count density and integrated discretes allow the system designer to reduce the overall system footprint (slot count) while reducing power consumption. I/O connections are available from either the front bezel or via the P14 connector. Also included with the EPMC-1553 is CORE-API, a flexible, easy-to-port API provided in source code. Board support packages for Windows XP, 2000, Me, NT, 98, 95, and VxWorks are provided.

Condor Engineering, based in Santa Barbara, California, a leading supplier of avionics databus solutions, was recently acquired by GE Fanuc Embedded Systems. Designated as the center of excellence for avionics product development, Condor continues to focus its efforts on the development and support of critical flight, test, simulation and embedded interfaces for Commercial and Military (MIL-STD-1553) avionics databuses.
