The 3U, 5-slot chassis RDC-35CP0B is a pre-configured rugged system with a PowerPC NXP P2041 processor. It is ideally suited to support a multitude of military/aerospace applications that require programmable communications and I/O with RS-422/423/485 Serial Communications; Dual-Redundant, Quad Channel MIL-STD-1553B; ARINC 429/575; Discrete I/O; Differential Transceiver; A/D Conversion; D/A Conversion; RTD Measurement; CANBus (CAN 2.0 A&B or J1939) and Dual-Port Gig-E Ethernet. It is designed to consolidate inputs from military aircraft systems and sensors and distribute them via a full duplex switched Ethernet network. Since these systems host the avionics and utilities functions, several boxes and hundreds of pounds of cable can be eliminated.
Remote data concentrators (RDC) often serve as the central nervous system of a military aircraft and are a perfect fit for a number of mil-aero applications including fixed-wing, rotorcraft and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) platforms.
