API and user code examples for ARINC-429 solutions

Sital Technology’s ARINC-429 software works in conjunction with Sital’s IP, board and tester products. The API/library is available with drivers for Windows, VxWorks and Linux. For applications of Sital’s ARINC-429 IP core, the API/library includes functions for working with up to 16 transmit channels and/or up to 16 receive channels.

The API includes function calls for ARINC-429 channel initialization, determining the number of ARINC-429 boards, opening or closing a channel, setting (writing) the value of a channel’s configuration register, getting (reading) the value of a channel’s configuration register, reading channel status, receiving (reading) data, sending (transmitting) data, reading the number of words in a channel’s receive FIFO, resetting an ARINC-429 channel, clearing the ARINC-429 label array (for receiving), adding a label to the label array, getting (reading) the label array table, enabling or disabling, the label array table, along with some low-level routines. The latter include writing data to a buffer and reading data from a buffer.
