A high-performance serial NTDS module for PMC slots

Powerful NTDS I/O capabilities in a small package

The PMC NTDS Serial card connects computers with PCI Mezzanine Card (PMC) slots to military computers and peripherals with MIL-STD-1397C Type D or E interfaces. The PMC is a daughter card that installs in an industry standard PMC slot on a host CPU or PMC carrier, providing full-featured NTDS I/O capabilities in a small form factor. IXI's PMC NTDS is easy to program and offers a variety of input and output modes to support any NTDS protocol. Hardware-independent input and output channels allow the PMC NTDS to perform simultaneous input and output (full duplex) operations. PMC NTDS boards can be used for passive tap applications as well as normal NTDS I/O. An on-board time stamp generator tags individual input words with 125 ns resolution. Time stamping is software-selectable and can be used with active or passive communications. All boards in the PMC NTDS family are software-compatible making it easy to mix parallel and serial NTDS boards in the same system as well as allowing transparent migration of applications between PCI, PMC, cPCI, PCIe, and PC/104-Plus versions of the Swift. Device driver software is available for the most commonly-used operating systems. For maintenance and reliability, PMC NTDS Serial boards have an internal loopback path that allows it to be tested without disconnecting cables. The PMC NTDS can be updated in the field by reconfiguring its Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) Logic to add or compensate for non-compliant interfaces. Using FPGA technology reduces component obsolescence, enabling the PMC NTDS to be deployed and supported for years to come.
