SBS Technologies, Inc., Telemetry and Communications Products Introduces the Model 4428-V CCSDS Module

<UL> <LI>Supports uplink and downlink operations <LI>Configurable and upgradable <LI>Single board (VME 6U) solution <LI>Complies with all CCSDS recommendations </UL>

SBS Technologies, Inc., Telemetry and Communications Products (formerly SBS Berg Telemetry Systems) announces the Model 4428-V, a complete CCSDS interface for the VME bus. It features a DSP core design on a single VME 6U form factor allowing flexible user control to perform Advanced Orbiting System (AOS) uplink or downlink operation. The module provides broad user control of either sending or receiving of CCSDS data from the frame transfer level down to the packet encoding/decoding level. "This product provides our customers with a flexible solution for CCSDS requirements," said Bryan Graber, General Manager of SBS Technologies, Inc., Telemetry and Communications Products. "The DSP core design, proven in our PCI product, allows our customer to rapidly produce a VME solution using real-time operating systems." Price and Availability
The Model 4428-V is priced starting from $15,200 (list) and is available for delivery in 60 days. How It Works
The module is configured at startup for either a downlink or uplink operation. This process allows the user to have a flexible control of incoming/outgoing data streams. Data structures containing Reed-Solomon encoding/decoding interleaving options, frame sync strategy and mission specific characteristics are loaded prior to starting operations. Dynamic controls are provided to allow the user to gather data and statistical information on an as needed basis. A time code reader accepts IRIG A or B formats to provide synchronization with other test equipment. The Model 4428-V has a Block Level Transfer (BLT) D64 slave engine to facilitate high-speed transfers from the on-board 256 Kbyte memory buffer across the VME bus. Both transmitted and received data can be TTL or RS-422 levels. The Model 4428-V can be used with a third party software driver and library package for VxWorks to easily create specific user applications.
