VadaTech Announces a new 3U VPX with Multi-Channel, Multi-Protocol Avionics, MIL-STD-1553/ARINC429/ARINC717

Henderson, NV – October 22, 2020 – VadaTech, a leading manufacturer of integrated systems, embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, announces the VPX339.

The VPX339 is based on the Data Device Corporation (DDC), BU-67118 multi-channel, multi-protocol avionics product. It utilizes the world’s most advanced MIL-STD-1553 technology. The module is low power, high MTBF, and high performance.

Some of the key features of the VPX339 are:

  • Up to 4 Dual Redundant Mil-STD-1553 channels
  • BC disable for RT only applications
  • Tx Inhibit for MT only applications
  • IRIG-106 Chapter 10 MIL-STD-1553 MT
  • Full line rate on all channels simultaneously
  • Tx inhibit for ARINC 429 Rx only applications
  • Programmable ARINC 429 speed
  • Up to 2 Programmable Tx/Rx ARINC 717 channels
  • Up to 2 CAN bus 2.0/ARINC 825 channels
  • Up to 8 programmable RS-232/422/485 channels
  • Asynchronous communications on all channels
  • Synchronous communication on up to 2 channels
  • Up to 10 Avionics/Digital discrete I/O
  • 48-bit/100 ns Time Stamp
  • IRIG-B Input

The module can output MIL-STD-1553A/B, IRIG106, ARINC 429, CAN bus/ARINC 825 channels, discrete I/O, ARINC-717, etc. Additionally, it has an onboard DMA engine for low CPU utilization. IRIG-106 Chapter 10, Tx inhibit, and ARINC 717 which are ideal for flight data recorders. Overall, the VPX339 is ideal for applications such as mission-computers, displays and LRUs, digital data recorders, radar systems/situational awareness, commercial aerospace, flyable avionics/UAVs, data loading and data monitors.
