Avionics I/O Computers
A computer and so much more...
With so many built-in capabilities, these highly-flexible avionics I/O computers are the ideal fit for a wide range of applications.
These rugged, conduction-cooled, COTS devices combine a powerful computer processor, multi-protocol databus interfaces, Ethernet, USB, and other I/O in a small, lightweight package.
Astronics avionics I/O computers deliver outstanding performance on the ground and in the air. They are routinely deployed on helicopter, fixed wing, and ground mobile platforms. They include standard databus protocol interfaces including MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429, ARINC 717, ARINC 708, Serial, discrete I/O, Ethernet, and USB.
Common Applications Include:
- Data and protocol converting
- Network serving
- Health monitoring
- Local/distributed control
- Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) integration
- Maintenance gateway
- Data recording
