Product Overview

GET Engineering is proud to announce its MIL‑STD‑1397 NTDS Serial Type E PCI Interface Adapter. This adapter provides an ultra‑reliable MIL‑STD‑1397 Revision C Interface with the option of full Dual‑Tap capability in a single card. All configuration parameters are accessible through a simple software user interface with FPGA controlled DMA channels for transmit and receive buffers to reduce host CPU overhead.

GET Engineering’s PCI NTDS Serial adapter is available in extended temperature ranges. The software included with this adapter provides the user with an operating system independent API enabling easy migration from one operating system to another; for example, from Windows to Linux.
