Abaco introduces Thunderbolt 3 interface to extend family of avionics devices for test, simulation

Alabama-based Abaco Systems has announced it has extended its range of portable avionics devices with the addition of an ARINC664-compatible RCNIC-A2PA-TB and multiprotocol RAR15XF-TB that supports up to four channels of MIL-STD-1553 and 18 channels of ARINC 429 on a single device, the company said.

These new devices complement Abaco´s previously announced QPM-1553-TB and RCEI-830A-TB.

Abaco´s Thunderbolt 3 design delivers maximum flexibility and performance to extend the functionality of existing test systems without adding more slots. It also delivers portability and convenience for test and simulation users and for flight-line use. Typical applications include bus analysis/simulation, system integration activities, and flight-line including 615-3 data loading and MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul).

Abaco Systems is a global leader in open architecture computing and electronic systems for aerospace, defense and industrial applications.
