PARIS Data Device Corporation (DDC) has announced Integrity support for the BU-65596M, a four-channel MIL-STD-1553 PMC card.
DDC said the BU-65596/7F/M MIL-STD-1553 PMC card is engineered for harsh environments and utilizes a 1553 ASIC design to achieve very high reliability with very low power dissipation and can be used in conduction or air cooled applications to easily add 1553 capabilities to systems.
The BU-65596M PMC card already supports VxWorks, Linux and Windows operating systems. The addition of Integrity support provides a hardware/software solution optimized for peak performance in rugged environments, DDC claimed.
