These modules provide a dual redundant MIL-STD-1553 channel with four open/ground avionics level ( 35V) discrete I/O signals in addition to IRIG-B input and Trigger I/O. Hard wired RT address signal input pins are also available at the connector.

This Acropack card utilizes the latest AIM Common Hardware Core derived from the field proven MIL-STD-1553 interface to deliver low power consumption and high performance for rugged environments and embedded applications.

AP571-000: Single function MIL-STD-1553.
AP572-000: Full multi-function MIL-STD-1553.

Options (Contact factory for ordering): Direct coupled MIL-STD-1553 bus. | Safety critial monitoring only (Tx inhibit). | Polyurethane conformal coating.

The AcroPack® product line updates our popular Industry Pack I/O modules with a PCIe interface format. This tech-refresh design offers a compact size, low-cost I/O, and a rugged form factor. Combining different AcroPack module types on one XMC, VPX, or PCIe carrier allows for a simplified modular approach to system assembly.

Designed for COTS applications these avionics communication mezzanine modules deliver high-density, high-reliability, and high-performance at a low cost.

The AP570 series modules are 70mm long, which is 19.05mm longer than the full-length mini PCIe card at 50.95mm. The board’s width is the same as an mPCIe board of 30mm and uses the same mPCIe standard board hold down standoff and screw keep-out areas.

A down-facing 100-pin Samtec connector mates with the carrier card. This ensures a secure connection for your I/O without the vulnerabilities of cabling.

  • Description

    An application programming interface with function routines for AcroPack modules/carriers. Customizable for other operating systems.

    Function Libraries for VxWorks

    Acromag’s software development tools greatly simplify the interface between AcroPack I/O boards and your application program. Libraries provide easy-to-use C function routines that quickly integrate with your application. The C functions are ready for use “as-is,” but they are also easily customized for your unique application.

    DLL Driver for Windows

    This package provides DLL driver level support for Acromag’s line of AcroPack products.

    AcroPack Windows Driver Software consists of low – level drivers and Windows Dynamic Link Libraries (DLLs) that facilitate the development of Windows applications accessing Acromag AcroPack I/O modules.

    The software includes kernel drivers and DLLs for both 32 and 64-bit versions of Windows. Applications developed to run on 32-bit versions of Windows use the 32-bit kernel drivers and 32-bit DLLs. Applications developed to run on 64-bit versions of Windows use the 64-bit kernel drivers and either the 32-bit or 64-bit DLLs. Except where noted otherwise, the usage of the 32-bit and 64-bit DLLs is identical.
