Airborne systems that need a small footprint or must comply with an industry assurance standard such as DO-178B [1] or DO-178C [2] are sensitive to size and complexity costs in the run-time support libraries.

In response to the growing nexus between physical risk (counterfeits) and cyber risk (infiltration of systems and exfiltration of data) the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has introduced a new policy adding security as a fundamental pillar of federal acquisition and supply chain risk management.

SPONSORED WHITE PAPER
PENTEK
 
An A/D (Analog-to-Digital) converter, frequently abbreviated as ADC, accepts an analog voltage at the input and produces a digital representation of that voltage at the output that’s called a “sample”. The two primary characteristics of A/Ds are the rate of conversion or sampling rate, expressed in samples per second, and the accuracy of each digital sample expressed as the number of binary bits or decimal digits per sample.

SPONSORED WHITE PAPER
PENTEK
 
Before the advent of OpenVPX, designers of embedded systems took advantage of the extreme connectivity offered by VPX (VITA 46), but were faced with a virtually unlimited number of possible implementations. Specific choices for the control and data channel assignments for each slot, the backplane connectivity, and serial fabrics were often made somewhat arbitrarily to suit the particular needs of the current system.
