Embedded USB Interface Cards
Small Size, Weight, Power.
Compact and rugged databus interface PCBAs (Printed Circuit Board Assemblies) provide an easy USB alternative to traditional embedded card types, while delivering small size and light weight.
Proven Interface Designs.
These boards link avionics databuses to widely-available USB ports, which supply all needed power. They are used in Astronics' portable USB adapter products: the USB Multi, USB 1553, USB 429/717, and USB 708.

Small Size and Weighs only 2.3 Ounces!
The Printed Circuit Board Assemblies (PCBAs) for Ballard's popular USB adapter products are available without the enclosure for use in embedded applications. These small and lightweight units provide robust, low power interfaces for MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429, ARINC 717, ARINC 708 and others.
Completely Powered by the USB Port
The PCBAs connect to widely-available USB ports to easily add avionics databus capability to new or existing embedded systems. At just 2.3 oz. (65 g) and fully USB powered, they allow system designers the opportunity to reduce Size, Weight and Power (SwaP) over other alternatives.
