Mx5 Series

Mx5 Series XMC and PMC Databus Interface Cards

Mx5 databus interface cards enable embedded systems to communicate with, simulate, test, and monitor avionics equipment and systems.

These 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).

The Mx5 includes an array of 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.

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.

The high density design gives you more channels to work with: as many as 8 dual-redundant MIL-STD-1553 or 22 ARINC 429.
