DO-160G With ARINC 429 and ARINC 717

Manufacturer: duagon MEN

MP70S is an application ready, DO-160G qualified, general purpose device for high speed network applications inside an aircraft, such as in-flight entertainment, wireless content server, web servers or flight maintenance servers.


The MP70S is powered by the latest generation Intel Core-I7 CPU features a carrier-grade 16-port Ethernet switch and provides a storage capacity up to 1.8 TB SSD which makes it the ideal solution for the high-performance computing and networking requirements in aircraft.


The MP70S is ARINC600 compliant, 4 MCU and is housed in a rugged natural convection cooled case which is designed for both line-fit and retrofit installations in avionics bays. Based on the open standard CompactPCI Serial, the MP70S is designed for long-term availability, scalability, flexibility and future guaranteed. It also guarantees the highest reliability due to directly soldered essential components such as the CPU and RAM and cable-less design.


To connect to legacy aircraft equipment, the MP70S provides an interface for ARINC 429 and ARINC 717, as well as a discrete I/O. With two configurable wireless options, it can be configured to simultaneously act as a customer accessible wireless access point while also providing a connection to cellular 3G/4G networks to perform data


A display on the front panel allows the system designer to brand the system to his needs and/or show system status and operating instructions.


The MP70S service interfaces are directly accessible by opening the front flap for easy maintenance, installation and data loading. Two USB 3.0 interfaces allow extremely fast updates of the internal disks. The MP70S supports Linux and is delivered with the operating system and device drivers pre-installed.
