DIO module & interface converter.

Hi all
Has anyone used DIO as a 2-wire interface module, for example ARINC module? Is it possible to realize sequential code ARINC on DIO (GX5055) or for this it is necessary to have special module?
Thank's
Roman

Re: DIO module & interface converter.

Are you looking for a module that can do ARINC 429 bus communication (I/O) ?

Yes, I’m looking for the solution in organization of the ARINC communication with avionics units.
But I have GX5055 module at the moment, may I use it for this communication? As the task seems to be rather easy- we have to make a procedure, which will convert a digital code into an array, which later will be downloaded into the module and transfer on some frequency… Or is this not that easy?

Re: DIO module & interface converter.

Do you physically have a GX5055 currently (or is it a GX5050?)?

It would be possible to transmit an ARINC 429 signal with the GX5055 but it wouldn't be the most efficient method.
Receiving ARINC 429 with the GX5055 would be difficult because the signal is self clocked so there would not be a way to synchronize the incoming signal with the GX5055. You would have to over sample the signal and then analyze the data to figure out the individual bits and packets of data

We sell a dedicated ARINC 429 Avionics Bus card (PXI) called the AX429 which would be a much better solution. This instrument would allow you to easily send and receive ARINC 429 bus traffic. I have uploaded the datasheet to this thread for your review.

Re: DIO module & interface converter.

we don't have the module yet, but we'll got it soon. Talking about ARINC module- is there a driver for it in ATEasy?

The ARINC 429 module's ATEasy driver has not been released yet, but it will ship with any orders for the module.
