  • ARINC 429 interface
  • 4-port dual redundant MIL-STD-1553 interface
  • Analog I/O (ADC/DAC/differential and discrete) – 96 ports
  • Serial I/O (EIA-422/423/232)
  • Wind River VxWorks 6.x and ARINC 653 BSP
  • 28 VDC MIL-STD-704E power input
  • Power consumption: ~ 150W full configuration; 100W typical
  • Dimensions: 13.87 x 8.1 x 11.59” (352.3 x  205.74 x 294.39 mm)
  • Weight: 35 lb (15.88 kg)
  • MTBF: depending on configuration
