Fibre Channel Cards
DDC developed its line of high-speed Fibre Channel network access controllers and switches to support the real time processing demands of field-critical data networking between sensors, computer nodes, data storage, displays, and weapons, for air, sea, and ground military vehicles. Fibre Channel's architecture is optimized to meet the performance, reliability, and demanding environmental requirements of embedded, real-time, military applications, and designed to endure the multi-decade life cycle demands of military/aerospace programs.
DDC’s Fibre Channel product line includes the FibreACCESS Network Access Controller (NAC) and the FibreMATRIX Switch, both specifically designed to support high-speed and high-reliability data networking applications. DDC's High-Speed 1760 PMC cards are targeted to weapons systems, including stores management systems, launchers and racks, weapons, and test equipment. These products were developed using in-house intellectual property independent of the life cycles of commercial devices. Ruggedness options for DDC’s Fibre Channel cards include a choice of air and conduction cooling, enabling operation over extended temperature ranges without the need for up-screening.
Synchro / Resolver Conversion Technology
DDC is also a global leader in Synchro/Resolver Solutions. We offer a broad line of Synchro/Resolver instrument grade cards, including angle position indicators and simulators. Our Synchro/Resolver-to-Digital and Digital-to-Synchro/Resolver microelectronic components are the smallest, most accurate converters, and also serve as the building block for our card-level products. All of our Synchro/Resolver line is supported by software, designed to meet today's integrated needs. The Synchro/Resolver line has been field proven for military and industrial applications, including radar, IR, and navigation systems, fire control, flight instrumentation/simulators, motor/ motion feedback controls and drivers, and robotic systems.
Solid State Power Controllers
As the world’s largest supplier of Solid-State Power Controllers (SSPCs) and Remote Power Controllers (RPCs), DDC was the first to offer commercial and fully-qualified MIL-PRF-38534 and Class K Space-level screening for these products. DDC’s complete line of SSPC and RPC boards and components support real-time digital status reporting and computer control, and are equipped with instant trip, and true I²T wire protection. The SSPC and RPC product line has been field proven for military markets, and are used in the Bradley fighting vehicles and M1A2 tank.
