The board supports up to 8 modules, and each module represents an independent test and simulation device. Most modules are based on existing Excalibur products such as the 1553 Px family, the 1553 MCH family and the ARINC-429 RxTx.  Additional modules are being added constantly.

The EXC-4000 family represents a breakthrough in flexibility for avionics test equipment permitting the simulation of an entire test suite from a single board. It is, for example, possible to control up to 80 ARINC-429 channels, eight 1553 channels, 160 discrete I/O, or a mixture of protocols from an EXC-4000VME/VXI board. Most modules are dual port RAM processor based and offer a simple and powerful interface to the card. 

The EXC-4000VME/VXI is supplied with C drivers, including source code. Mating connector provided for I/O connections.

Please see multi protocol 4000 modules for additional information on protocols that can be added to this card.
