CPCI-400 Four I/O modules CompactPCI carrier board
Choice of I/O modules
The CPCI-400 carrier board is a high performance, modular multi-protocol Compact PCI (CPCI) solution to your tests and simulation requirements, supporting up to four MAX Technologies mezzanine I/O modules. It is powered by a 200MHz RISC processor and 16 MB of shared memory, permitting it to buffer and process communication with the host computer.
The on-board firmware allows scheduling of transmit messages, bridging between protocols, complex label filtering, and triggering of recordings. Received messages are time-tagged with 32-bit or 64-bit microsecond precision, without requiring real-time intervention from the host system. Furthermore, multiple carrier boards can be time-synchronized resulting in unmatched precision in critical real-time applications.
The CPCI-400 is complemented by MAX Technologies’ mezzanine I/O modules available for ARINC 429/561/568/629/708/717, ASYNC RS-232/422/485, CSDB, ASCB, HDLC/SDLC, MIL-STD-1553, Pulse/Frequency generator, Analog and Discrete I/O and more. Moreover, multiple protocols can be implemented and run simultaneously on a single CPCI-400 carrier board and all the data transferred is time-synchronized, even between multiple protocols and multiple boards.
The MX Foundation API library provides high-level abstraction of hardware and allows to easily control mixed protocols and I/O modules on one or multiple carrier boards. MX Foundation is available for Windows, Linux and others operating systems. Read more…
MAXIM addresses the need for various test & measurement solutions that engineers and technicians can easily use and customize to fit their specific requirements.
MAXIM provides multi-protocol support in a single, powerful and easy-to-use software. With MAXIM, there is no need to buy, learn and maintain several different simulation and analysis software solutions. Whether your project involves designing, validation, manufacturing, simulation, testing, maintenance, certification or any other process, you need an integrated and flexible solution. MAXIM’s “project-based” environment is easy-to-use and ready for expansion to support a variety of T&M communication protocols and legacy I/O.
MAXIM covers a wide range of needs when handling real-time data information such as message scheduling, recording, playback, monitoring, real-time graphics and data analysis.Read more…
