Sparrow™ PMC ATDS Serial

The most compact, powerful and reliable serial ATDS interface available today

ATDS PMC achieves superior levels of serial ATDS performance in cots systems

The PMC ATDS Serial Board installs in an industry standard PCI Mezzanine Card (PMC) slot to provide an interface to a Tactical Digital Information Link (TADIL) A serial channel (MIL-STD- 188-203-1A, Appendix D2). The PMC ATDS Serial Board is easy to program and offers a variety of input and output modes to support all ATDS protocols. In addition to conventional input and output operations, the PMC ATDS Serial Board has a built-in passive tap mode that provides interface monitoring and data capturing capability. A software enabled, embedded time-stamp generator tags input words with 125ns resolution. The time-stamp clock can be synchronized between multiple boards by using a small interconnect cable and can be driven by an external clock source.

Design features

Reliability and flexibility are designed into the PMC ATDS Serial Board. An internal loop-back path allows the PMC ATDS Serial Board to be tested without disconnecting cables. Field upgrades can be done easily by running a simple utility to update the onboard Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA). The interface comes standard with a driver for any one of the supported operating systems, a loop-back module, an excellent documentation package, and sample C language code that can be freely used in application software.
