Canton, Mass. United Electronic Industries (UEI) released the DNA-429-5xx series of ARINC 429 avionics bus interfaces. The DNA-429-566 offers six transmit (Tx) six receive (Rx) channels, the DNA-429-512 provides twelve Rx channels while the DNA-429-548 has four Tx eight Rx. All boards are compliant with the ARINC 429 specification and are software-selectable for high-speed (100 kHz) or low-speed (12.5 kHz) operation. Receive channels include automatic label filtering so only data from selected channels is captured.
The filter can be set to forward data from between 1 and 255 Labels, or may be disabled so all data is captured, regardless of source. Each received word may also be time stamped with the date and time of reception. Channels can be set to transmit asynchronously or based upon a hardware-controlled scheduler. Each channel supports a transmission table that allows up to 256 unique schedules. Asynchronous (non-scheduled) data may be sent with three priorities.
Software for the DNA-429 series is provided as part of the UEIFramework. The framework provides an application programming interface that supports all popular Windows programming languages, as well as supporting programmers using Linux and most real-time operating systems including QNX, RTX, RT Linux and more. The framework supplies support for those creating applications in LabVIEW, MATLAB/Simulink, DASYLab or any application that supports ActiveX or OPC servers.
