L-3 Interstate Electronics Corporation

IEC’s expertise as a technology innovator has made the company a dominant leader in high performance GPS technologies, ruggedized vehicular displays, integrated video exploitation systems, powerful instrumentation products, and extensive engineering services


L-3 IEC’s Antares™ NTDS I/O boards provide a direct interface between military computers and the industry standard VMEbus. These proven, high-performance boards offer many features that make them easy to install, easy to program and easy to operate.

HIGH PERFORMANCE NTDS Bit -slice technology provides on-board intelligence. Where high speed, specialized NTDS sequence control is required, L-3 IEC's Antares NTDS bitslice design is the proven solution. The bit-slice architecture is tailored for intelligent NTDS I/O protocol control. Users can construct I/O instruction sequences that execute rapidly without requiring host processor intervention. Users can access Antares NTDS' 15 versatile instructions to transfer and manipulate I/O data, test and set host processor semaphores, and service VMEbus interrupts in response to I/O events. On-board intelligence allows users to carry out complex NTDS protocols without assistance from the host processors. Multiple Antares NTDS boards can easily operate in a single VME chassis with a single processor or multiple processors.
