Embedded Interface Solutions
Mx5 databus interface cards for XMC and PMC enable embedded systems to communicate with, simulate, test, and monitor avionics equipment and systems.
Do More with Less
Consolidate your I/O into a single expansion slot. The Mx5 comes with the avionics protocols and channels you need on one card.
Multiple Avionics Protocols
Choose one or a combination of two or more protocols on a single card: MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429, 717, and 708. Mx5 also includes numerous discrete I/O.
High Channel Counts
The high density design gives you more channels to work with: as many as 8 dual-redundant MIL-STD-1553 or 22 ARINC 429.
The Mx5 includes an array of other important features, including:
- Numerous Discrete I/O
- IRIG A/B PWM and AM
- 48 bit time-tag
- 64 MB ECC Data Memory
- Extensive Built-in Test (BIT)
With so many features and so much flexibility, the Mx5 is your best solution in a wide variety of applications, such as:
- Rugged deployed systems
- Embedded test systems
- High performance simulators
- Demanding requirements
- Mixed protocol systems
- Avionics upgrades and retrofits
- Databus health monitoring
With the Mx5, it has never been easier to standardize on one product line for all of your mezzanine card I/O needs.
Mx5 high performance mezzanine cards efficiently manage fully loaded databuses with ease. On-board protocol processors handle all databus activity, freeing the host for application-specific processing. 64 MB ECC (error correction) memory provides generous data storage with a variety of buffering schemes.
High speed host interfaces are achieved with an x4 PCI Express lane with bus mastering on XMC versions and a 32/64-bit, 33/66/133 MHz PCI-X interface on PMC versions. All cards have extensive built-in test (PBIT, CBIT, IBIT).
Array of Styles
There's an Mx5 model to fit your system. Choose from the following:
- XMC or PMC
- Front or rear I/O
