Databus to Network Interfaces
The OmniBusBox II (OBB2) enables computers and networks to interface with multiple avionics databuses for testing, validating and simulating commercial and military avionics equipment and systems. These versatile units can be controlled through Ethernet or USB, or can be programmed to operate standalone. Readily available as Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) products, the OBB2 is perfect for challenging simulation, test, interface, bridging, control, simulation and data recording applications.
The OmniBusBox II is the next-generation of Astronics' popular OmniBusBox product with faster I/O and processing capabilities. The OBB2 is highly configurable and includes built-in standard peripherals (Ethernet, serial, and USB), along with four internal Cores that can be populated with a variety of databus protocols and discrete I/O modules. With the newest advanced set of MIL-STD-1553 and ARINC 429 modules, users can verify wave form compatibilities, test functions of bus shorts and opens, and—when combined with our CoPilot® software—perform lab, production and flight test verification and simulation right out of the box.
At the heart of the OmniBusBox II is a P1022 Freescale PowerPC processor and Ballard's FPGA protocol engines. In addition to the built-in standard peripherals and core I/O functions, PMC/XMC and Mini-PCIe sites in the 4-core version provide customer expansion capabilities such ARINC 664, CAN, IEEE 1394 and wireless protocols. The OBB2 includes extensive timing synchronization with multiple sources including 10MHz, PPS, IEEE 1588 and IRIG A/B. The 1U high case is easily placed on a desk or rack mountable. Though designed primarily as a lab product, the OBB2 has potential for use in large fixed-wing aircraft and light vehicle applications.
Fiber-optic video transmission system
The OpticLink CL-Base set is the solution for long haul and for secure CameraLink digital video transmission. The CL-Base model is part of the second generation of opticlink , including a 10 years experience with first generation sets used in all kind of applications, all over the world. Please note that ARVOO Imaging Products is the inventor of opticlink . For CameraLink digital video transmission, a copper cable can be used upto a few meters distance between camera and frame grabber. This is too short for many real world applications. The opticlink set offers the solution by bridging a distance of upto tens of meters, hundreds of meters or even kilometers based on an optical fiber connection. The OpticLink CL-Base is the only solution for reliable video links for security systems and harsh environments, since fiber optic communication cannot be monitored or distorted by electromagnetic noise or radiation. The OpticLink CL-Base accepts CameraLink Base digital video and is fully transparent for the data transmission. The CL-Base is housed in a strong metal enclosure and can be used in industrial environments. For more rugged solutions, please contact ARVOO Imaging Products BV.
