Simulator Solutions is about to commence our first production run of SimStack ARINC 429 boards. We have been working in the background on interfacing more OEM. Below is a rough video showing testing with a real, unmodified 747-400 Mode Control Panel (MCP). The MCP is connected to a SimStack ARINC 429 board, which plugs directly into the riser of a SimStack Foundation board. Custom code on the Foundation board allows the ARINC 429 hardware to communicate over the Ethernet network.
SimStack ARINC 429 – MCP Demo
The flexibility and power of the SimStack solution delivers a single, integrated solution that allows SimStack to not only communicate with ARINC 429 hardware, but also take care of other I/O functions. This means that one SimStack Foundation Board, and one SimStack ARINC 429 board can control all aspects of the MCP.
