ATDS PC/104-Plus Interface Adapter

GET PC/104-Plus adapters provide new levels of reliability and performance for interfacing to the MILSTD‑188‑203‑1A (TIDAL-A). This new adapter is ideal for PC/104+ embedded designs requiring high performance, fast processing, and low power dissipation. GET provides a wide selection of software drivers that come standard with the PC/104-Plus ATDS adapter.

The ATDS 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 adapter is available in either commercial or extended temperature ranges. The software included provides the user with an operating system independent API enabling easy migration from one operating system to another.
