Santa Barbara, CA – November 22, 2005 – Condor Engineering, a leading provider of military and commercial avionics databus solutions, today announced the availability of its latest ARINC 708 databus interface (P-708) for weather radar applications.
“Condor has migrated its interface technology to a more versatile PMC module, while upgrading product functionality and capability,” said John Gerngross, president of Condor Engineering. “Customers requiring weather radar databus interfaces can rely on this powerful solution for a wide range of test, simulation, display and embedded applications,” added Gerngross.
The P-708 simultaneously supports two ARINC 708 channels. Each P-708 channel operates as an independent transmitter or receiver with programmable frame size and buffer storage capacity. Specialized receive features such as frame time-tagging and error detection/notification of short/long frames, as well as specialized transmit features such as sweep scheduling, programmable frame gap duration, and short/long frame and start/stop sync error injection, are included. With a programmable number of bits per frame, the P-708 is useful for a wide range of 1 MHz Manchester-encoded applications.
Condor provides integrated support for this module on PCI, CompactPCI, VME, VXI and native PMC platforms. An easy-to-use, high-level software API (Application Programming Interface), is included with support for Windows XP, 2000, Me, NT, 98, 95 and VxWorks (x86 and PPC). The API is also provided in C source code for ease of integration.
