The M706 Avionic Communications PMC provides multiple avionics style communication protocols (MIL-STD-1553, ARINC-429, CANbus, and Serial I/O), all packed into a small single-width PMC form factor specifically designed for harsh environments. It offers a complete and unique solution for applications requiring diverse multiple avionics communication ports, eliminating the need for multiple cards and providing high flexibility for system integrators. The M706 integrates 2 dual redundant MIL-STD- 1553 channels, 16 ARINC-429 receive channels, 8 ARINC-429 transmit channels, 2 CANbus, and up to 12 UART ports.
MIL-STD-1553B ports support BC/RT/MT operation modes, Serial ports support RS-422/RS-232/RS-485
physical layer. 6 of the 12 serial ports can be configured to provide modem hardware flow control (flow
control signals support RS-232 only).
The M706 also features 6 opto-isolated digital discrete input/output channels, which may be used to externally assign a unique RT address to one of the MIL-STD-1553B ports. In additional the M706 provides two special ground/open inputs and two 28V/open outputs.
M706 I/O signals can be routed to either the P4 or front panel connectors, according to the configuration
