In this issue, we've got Acromag, with a new Spartan-6 FPGA module with plug-in I/O.  Alta DT has released the industry's first mini PCI Express 1553 and ARINC products. Also, take a look at Getac's super light, fully rugged tablet. 


Aventas has added new information to our website about our evaluation unit program.  Evaluation units are available for most all of our products.  Check it out here.


Acromag - User-Configurable Spartan-6 FPGA Modules with Plug-In I/O

Acromag's cost-effective PMC-SLX modules featAcromagPMC-SLX150ure a user-configurable Xilinx® Spartan®-6 FPGA enhanced with high-speed memory and a high-throughput PCI-X interface. Field I/O interfaces to the FPGA via the rear J4/P4 connector and/or with optional front mezzanine AXM plug-in I/O modules. The result is a powerful and flexible I/O processor module that is capable of executing custom instruction sets and algorithms.  


The logic-optimized FPGA is well-suited for a broad range of applications. Typical uses include hardware simulation, communications, in-circuit diagnostics, military servers, signal intelligence, and image processing.


Key Features

  • Reconfigurable Spartan-6 FPGA with 147,433 logic cells
  • PCI-X bus 100MHz 64-bit interface
  • 256k x 64-bit dual-port SRAM provides direct links from the PCI bus and to FPGA (optional 1M x 64-bit)
  •  Supports both front and rear I/O connections
  • 64 I/O or 32 LVDS lines direct to FPGA via rear (J4) connector
  • Plug-in I/O extension modules are available for front mezzanine
  • FPGA code loads from PCI-X bus or from flash memory
  • Other memory options available (call factory)
  • Supports dual DMA channel data transfer to CPU/bus
  • Support for Xilinx ChipScope™ Pro interface
  • Designed for conduction-cooled host card or -40 to 85°C operation in air-cooled systems

Alta DT - MIL-STD-1553 & ARINC XMC Interface Card 

Alta Data Technologies' XMC-MA4 interface module is a multi-channel, multi-protocol 1553 and ARINC XMC card supported by the latest software technologies. The PMC card are based on the industry's most advanced 32-bit FPGA protocol engine, AltaCore™, and by a featuAlta1553ARINCre-rich application programming interface, AltaAPI™, which is a multi-layer ANSI C and Windows .NET 2.0 (MSVS 2005 C++, C#, VB .NET) architecture. This hardware and software package provides increased system performance and reduces integration time.


The XMC-MA4's BC capability includes variable message/label framing/subframing with transmission scheduling provides the most advanced control operations. ARINC TX has complete frequency control per channel. RT and ARINC RX, Monitor, Playback and Signal Generator functions also include industry leading functions to meet the most demanding requirements.


AltaCore is guaranteed 1553B Notice II & IV and ARINC compliant and all cards are manufactured to the highest IPC-Level 3 standards and certifiedISO 9001:2008 processes. Playback and Signal Generation are part of BC-TX operations. 


Key Features

  • 1-5 Dual Redundant 1553/15538 Channels
  • 8 ARINC Channels: 4 Shared RX.TX & 4 RX
  • Ideal for Advanced Test or Embedded Applications
  • Commercial, Extended Temp/Rugged/Conduction Cooled
  • **Signal Capture on First Channels - Standard**
  • P4 Rear Panel Optional

Getac - E100 Fully Rugged Tablet  

Weighing 3 pounds as the lightest rugged tablet on the market, the Getac E100 is easy to maneuver, and built with field and customer service applications in mindE100 Tablet. Despite its trim look and feel, the E100 is every bit as tough as the heavyweights: it meets MIL-STD-810G and IP65 standards for durability and protection against dirt/dust, water, motion/vibration, temperature and other factors that would severely damage a commercial-grade PC.


The E100 offers an 8.4" TFT SVGA transmissive display with an integrated touchscreen panel.  Optional features include an ultra-bright sunlight-readable display, an 800 nits backlit LCD screen for astonishing readability.  The special hot-swappable battery design extends the working hours of the unit as well as enables the better mobility for the professionals in the field.


The E100 includes 2GB DDRII DRAM and a vibration resistant SSD, all contained in a watertight fully rugged magnesium alloy case that is shock and drop resistant.


Key Features 

  • 800 Nits Touchscreen LCD with cutting-edge Getac sunlight readable technology
  • Ultra lightweight; 3 lbs/1.4 kg
  • Hot-swappable battery design
  • MIL-STD-810G and IP65 Certified
  • Full Magnesium Alloy case
  • Optional: 2nd Smart Card Reader
