The CM429-1 is an ARINC 429 interface in a type II or rugged Type III PCMCIA card. It enables a desktop or notebook computer to communicate with six ARINC 429 buses simultaneously for testing, simulation and development of avionics systems. The CM429-1 is ideal for portable notebook computer applications.

The CM429-1 is controlled by a powerful on-board processor. After the host computer configures and activates it, the CM429-1 transmits and receives ARINC words autonomously, eliminating host overhead. All recorded data are automatically time-tagged and mapped into memory by label/SDI. The CM429-1 can simultaneously maintain a time-tagged history of bus activity in a sequential record. Filtering options reduce memory requirements and make the sequential record easier to analyze. Incoming ARINC 429 words may be filtered according to label, SDI, time interval or changes in data.

The CM429-1 comes with an Application Program Interface (API) which simplifies the development of ARINC 429 applications. CoPilot 429, a powerful graphical program, can be purchased separately or with an ARINC 429 card for additional savings. With this software, users can define and view ARINC 429 data in raw form, engineering units or as virtual controls and instruments. The concurrent monitor saves all or selected messages with time-tags for subsequent processing or analysis.

The CM429-1 is also available with a combination of ARINC 429 and ARINC 717 capability (see CM429-1/717).
