P522 - AFDX/ARINC-664 Interface PMC

PMC Module

The P522 is a 32bit/33MHz PMC module with AFDX/ARINC-664 functionality. AFDX is a reliable, high-speed data bus commonly used in airborne applications for sending information between avionics subsystems. Its most important features are high data integrity, redundancy and deterministic behavior.
