Sital Technology’s BRD429VPX-SCC-30-13 FPGA-based single board computer (SBC) is a series of 3U VPX boards providing different mixes of I/Os.
The board includes an FPGA-based computer consisting of an ARM Cortex processor integrated on a Zynq Ultrascale+ FPGA. The board also includes up to 32 ARINC-429 receive channels, 16 ARINC-429 receive channels, along with several other on-board interfaces.
The other interfaces include RS-422, RS-232, SPI, I2C, GPIO and 10/100 Mbps Ethernet. Some versions of the board will also include PCI Express, MIL-STD-1553, avionic discrete and USB interfaces.
The board is supplied with a real-time operating system, BSP and drivers for either PetaLinux, Green Hills Integrity-178 tuMP or VxWorks. Software for “bare metal” (no operating system) can also be provided.
Software. The board is provided with a choice of PetaLinux or Green Hills Integrity-178 tuMP operating system, BSP and driver software for all interfaces. Drivers can also be supplied for VxWorks, “bare metal” (no operating system) and other real time operating systems.
Certifiability. The board and software are available with options for DO-254 and/or DO-178 certifiability (including artifacts) at levels up to and including DAL A. Note that DO-254 and DO-178 certifiability is not available for the board’s Ethernet interfaces or Ethernet API/library/driver software.
For its ARINC-429 and/or MIL-STD-1553 interfaces, the board includes options for Sital’s Safe and Secure (SnS) technology:
By means of enhanced physical layer signal monitoring, Sital’s SnS technology can detect cyber authentication “spoofing” (impersonation) violations. In addition, SnS is able to detect, categorize and locate intermittent or continuous open or short circuit wire faults in data bus and stub cables, connectors, couplers (for 1553), bus terminators or connected LRUs.
Sital’s cutting-edge, innovative “SnS” Technology designed for IP Core’s physical layer.
The patented “SnS” analyze all DataBus messages and provides 2 unique capabilities:
