The AT-PCI-MPAC is a ¾ length card meeting PCI Local Bus Spec.Rev 2.1. It comes with a standard 62-pin D-type connector for all I/O connectivity.
PCI Plug & Play
The AT-PCI-MPAC card provides full PCI plug & play compatibility greatly simplifying the installation of the card into a PCI compliant system. Both the BIOS and the OS can determine the memory and interrupt resources to be used by the card. As PCI interrupts are sharable, the OS can assign an interrupt of any PCI card in the system in the event of no free interrupt resources being available. The driver handles all such events.
The AT-PCI-MPAC cards provide two standard serial UART ports supporting RS-232 and RS-422 interfaces. These are capable of a maximum asynchronous baud rate of 115.2 Kb/s.
Digital I/O Channels
Additional to the serial I/O capabilities, the AT-PCI-MPAC is equipped with TTL/CMOS level digital I/O channels. It comes with 16 general-purpose digital I/O channels. These are pre-configured as 8 inputs and 8 outputs. These can be used to generate an interrupt on any type of level shift event.
MIL-STD-1553B Interface – Optional
The AT-PCI-MPAC card’s single function MIL-STD-1553B architecture emulates a Bus Controller or 31 Remote Terminals or Monitor Terminal modes. Polling and interrupt generation is also provided. The 1553B Channel comes with 64K words (DDC) static RAM.
Transformer and Direct Coupling
The cards are provided with the option of using them either in the transformer mode or in the direct mode. A jumper is provided on the cards to select the mode. The default connectivity is transformer-coupled mode.
ARINC429 Interface – Optional
The card can be configured with up to 2 ARINC429 controllers. Each controller is configured with 2Tx & 4Rx channels and has 128 x 32 bit static RAM. Look-up tables loaded into the RAM enable the module receive circuitry to filter and sort incoming data by label and destination bit. It also provides multilevel data specific interrupts or hardware triggers.
The AT-PCI-MPAC software includes:
> Bus Monitor
> Drivers & APIs
Record and replay of data
Replay with rate selection
Multi console at a time
Bus ideal time analyzer
Filtering option up to sub address
Message sampling option
Drivers & APIs
The AT-PCI-MPAC card comes with a powerful set of library functions to access the entire I/O functionality. The drivers are designed in a modular fashion consisting of component functions & application functions. The user’s test program can be developed with few calls to the driver, by using the set of Application functions provided. Drivers and high-level API libraries for Windows XP, Linux and RT-Linux are available depending on the platform. Sample programs are included with the card.
