Backplane Controller Modules

High-performance, field-proven backplane controllers for flight test & avionics

Our KAM-500 controller modules synchronize module operation and transfer data from one module to another. The controllers also contain the programming interface and are polarized to prevent them being plugged into a user-slot. There are a variety of different controller modules to suit a user’s flight test instrumentation and other avionics applications requirements, including Ethernet, PCM and MIL-STD-1553.
