Actel launched the Core429 Development Kit. The ARINC 429 kit enables avionics designers to evaluate the functionality of Actel’s Core429 IP core. The kit combines a Fusion Advanced Development Kit, an IP daughter card, and a Core429 daughter card. The Core429 Development Kit features ARINC 429 example software, Core429 programming files, ARINC 429 physical connections, and full user documentation. The Core429 Development Kit (CORE429-DEV-KIT-2) is available now for $2300.
The Actel Core429 Development Kit gives engineers access to a self-contained benchtop four-channel ARINC 429 bus evaluation system based on Actel’s firm-error immune flash Fusion mixed signal FPGA, as well as complete control of an ARINC 429 evaluation system that is compliant with the ARINC 429-16 specification. Designers can use the files provided with the Core429 Development Kit to program the M1AFS1500-FG484 device in the Fusion Advanced Development Kit to create an ARINC platform with four transmit channels and four receive channels. The Core429 daughter card has ARINC 429 physical connections and is plugged directly onto an IP-DC-SA IP daughter card, which provides a bridge to the Fusion Advanced Development Kit.
