Alta Data Technologies Introduces ARINC Ethernet Appliance

Alta Data Technologies (Alta) announces the release of an innovative new network appliance that provides real-time ARINC to Ethernet connectivity: eNet-A429. For the first time in the avionics industry, Alta has designed a real-time FPGA “thin-server” UDP technology to provide direct packet access for ARINC-429/575/573/717 interfaces with automatic ARINC receive channel to Ethernet bridging. Alta’s advanced, modular software package, AltaAPI™, provides complete portability between applications written for PCI/PCI Express based products and eNet-A429, the ultimate in code reuse and system design flexibility.

Besides providing up to eight ARINC channels via Ethernet connections, the raw electrical signals on the first two receive channels can be captured for protocol and electrical troubleshooting (a built in mini O-scope!).

“Our new eNet-A429 product represents true innovation and flexibility for customer’s avionics designs. Almost every avionics or communication system implements Ethernet LANs, and now it is easy to add ARINC connectivity to their networks. The appliance is very small (13.5x3.7x4cm), light weight (200 grams) and is low power 5-30V (e.g. USB power). eNet-A429’s low-cost, rugged design is ideal for networked lab or vehicle systems,” states Harry Wild, Vice President of Sales for Alta.

Jake Haddock, Alta CTO, adds: “We designed our advanced AltaCore™ protocol engine with a real-time, thin-sever UDP front-end, and then added an auto-bridging mode for sniffing ARINC interfaces. The customer has the option to control eNet-A429 like a traditional interface card and simultaneously have ARINC label packets auto transmitted on the LAN so that any computer can monitor data. eNet-A429 can utilize fast auto-boot images for simple UDP socket access making it virtually OS/machine independent.”

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
Over the course of two days, in addition to insightful conversations and presentations delving into the industry's current pressing challenges, there was considerable buzz about digital transformation and how it is enabling global enterprises to accelerate business growth. Blockchain has been a term that people hear but don't quite understand. The most common myths about blockchain include the assumption that it is private, or that there is only one blockchain, and the idea that blockchain is...
Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...
The term "digital transformation" (DX) is being used by everyone for just about any company initiative that involves technology, the web, ecommerce, software, or even customer experience. While the term has certainly turned into a buzzword with a lot of hype, the transition to a more connected, digital world is real and comes with real challenges. In his opening keynote, Four Essentials To Become DX Hero Status Now, Jonathan Hoppe, Co-Founder and CTO of Total Uptime Technologies, shared that ...
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...
Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.

He is currently Chief Strategy Officer at the industry-leading digital strategy and online community solutions firm, 7Summits.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
