CEI-420A
Interface for PC/104
Hardware
Available in a range of configurations to
match your needs, the intelligent CEI-420A
provides complete, integrated databus
functionality for ARINC 429/575 and related
avionics protocols in embedded PC/104
applications. The 420A supports maximum
data throughput on all channels while
providing on-board message scheduling,
label filtering, multiple buffering options,
timetagging and I/O discretes that handle
avionics-level voltages. Ruggedized
configurations with extended operating
temperatures and a configuration with
PC/104-Plus passthrough connector
are optional.
Software
Abaco software tools and solutions
significantly reduce the time required to
integrate ARINC 429 and other avionics
protocols into your application. Included
with the CEI-420A is our flexible, high-level
API (Application Programming Interface)
supporting 32-bit Windows NT/XP, VxWorks
5.5/6.x, and Linux kernels 2.4/2.6. A wide
variety of sample programs are included,
providing direct support for C/C++, C#.NET,
Visual Basic (VB6 and VB.NET), VxWorks,
and LabWindows/CVI development. This
powerful API supports multiple cards, and is
compatible with CEI-x20 API support on PCI,
PC/AT, CompactPCI and PMC platforms.
Optional software includes LabVIEW
support and BusTools/ARINC, Abaco’s
easy-to-use, Windows-based GUI solution
for ARINC 429 analysis, simulation and
data logging.
Architecture
Controlled by a powerful Intel 80960 CPU,
the CEI-420 features independent channels,
selectable data rates and parity, along with
automatic slew rate adjustment. Other
standard features include error detection,
small PC/104 bus memory footprint and
latching, keyed I/O connections. Up to
sixteen input discretes support TTL to
avionicslevel voltages, while up to eight lowside switched output discretes can handle up
to 0.5 ampere.
FEATURES:
• Up to 16 input discretes or 8 Rx
and 8 Tx ARINC 429 channels
• Intelligent interface with large
buffers
• Advanced, high-level software
API included for Microsoft®
Windows®, Linux, and VxWorks
• Easy-to-use BusTools/ARINC
Windows-based GUI bus analyzer
available
• PC/104-Plus pass-through
connectors available
• Up to 16 input and 8 output
discretes
• High-performance processor
• Fully independent channel
operation
• Support for ARINC 573 or 717
optional

Software Features
On-board firmware, large data buffers and
a high-level API are integrated to provide
total flexibility in receiving and generating
ARINC bus traffic. Filter data by label and/
or SDI for each receive channel. Three
different methods are provided to buffer
received data: Buffered Mode utilizes a
separate circular buffer for each channel;
Merged Mode combines all received data
into a single, timesequenced circular buffer;
and Dedicated Mode provides a snapshot
of the very latest data. Transmit messages
are automatically scheduled on-board or
transmitted from a FIFO.
Tools
API Support
Flexible, high-level utility libraries are
included with the CEI-420A (see “Software”
section on reverse side for details). Our
easy-to use API (Application Programming
Interface) speeds application development
by providing simplified access to all
configuration, initialization, transmit and
receive functionality. Contact Abaco for a
copy of the API User Manual to see how this
robust and flexible C programming interface
can reduce development, integration and
life cycle maintenance efforts. LabVIEW VI
support is also available.
Bus Analysis
BusTools/ARINC is our easy-to-use
Windows-based ARINC 429 Bus Analysis/
Simulation/Data Logging solution available
for the CEI-420A. Monitor multiple
channels in real-time. Display time-tagged
data in hex, binary or engineering units
(standard or custom). Filter received data by
label and/or SDI. View discrete descriptors
and user-bit-encoded values. Quickly create
and display historical and real-time charts of
individual labels. Record and playback data
over transmit buses.
