GET Engineering is proud to announce its new MIL‑STD‑188‑203‑1A (ATDS) Conduction Cooled Interface Adapter fully compliant to the ANSI/VITA‑20‑2001 Conduction Cooled PMC Standard. This adapter provides a TADIL‑A Serial Interface functioning either as a Data Terminal Set (DTS) or Terminal Data System (TDS). All configuration parameters are accessible through a simple software interface with FPGA‑controlled DMA channels to reduce host CPU overhead.
GET Engineering’s ATDS card is available in either commercial or extended temperature ranges with the option of either front panel (Micro‑D 25 pin) or rear (P4) I/O. The software included with this adapter card provides the user with an operating system independent API enabling easy migration from one operating system to another; for example, from Windows XP to Linux.
