DDC’s Rugged Avionics Interface Computer (AIC) provides a flexible and scalable platform that supports a wide range of data network communications. The system combines best-in-class performance from Intel’s embedded computing architecture and the I/O flexibility of DDC’s High Density Multi-Protocol XMC module, to deliver unmatched avionics connectivity in a small form factor, deployable, rugged enclosure.
Embedded Intel® Processor Provides Best-in-Class Computing, Programming and Flexibility, Enabling the AIC to Serve High Density Protocol Bridging and Application Needs.
Qualified for Rugged Air and Ground Environments.
Scalable Architecture and DDC's Portfolio of High Density XMC and Mini-PCIe Modules Enables System Customization to Support a Wide Range of Applications.
Field-Proven High TRL Hardware and Software Solution Saves Development Time and Costs.
Three Modes of Operation Provide Complete Bridging Capability for Lab Environments
1. Remote Access Mode Uses Ethernet as a Virtual Backplane Between Applications Running on a Host Computer and 1553/429 Interfaces Located within the AIC, Eliminating the Need and Cost of Long Cabling to Onboard 1553/429 Connections from the Test Lab
2. Protocol Conversion Mode Uses Bridging SDK, Which Allows Users to Easily Create Embedded Software on the AIC that will Autonomously Forward Data Between MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429, and Ethernet Interfaces
3. Standalone Mode Allows the AIC to Operate as a User Programmable Computer System
