ARINC 825 (CAN bus) interface module

Excalibur Systems, Inc.

The M4K825CAN is an intelligent multichannel ARINC 825 (CAN bus) interface module for the multiprotocol Excalibur 4000 family of carrier boards. The module supports up to ten ARINC-825 channels. In receive mode, the module stores all or selected messages with status and Time Tag information appended to each message. In transmit mode, the module operates via a transmit Bandwidth Frame which allows scheduling of data transmissions and reduces the need for host computer intervention.

The EXC-4000 carrier board series was developed to meet the needs of avionic testers for multi-protocol integrated, digital bus testing. Modules may be selected out of a growing list which currently includes MIL-STD-1553/1760, MMSI, H009, ARINC-429, ARINC-708/453, Serial (232/422/485), ARINC 717, Discrete and CAN bus. Additionally, an IRIG B decoder implements a global time stamp relative to the IRIG B pulses. The need for higher density, different protocols, and multi-channel on one integrated test card has made the EXC-4000 series very successful.
