For over 40 years, DDC has been a trusted and reliable leader in the design and manufacture of advanced electronic products for the aerospace, defense, and commercial marketplace.
Our range of card, software, and component products encompass:
DDC’s commitment to quality and customer satisfaction is reflected in our registration by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) as an ISO 9001:2000 and AS9100:2004-1 compliant company, and by our MIL-PRF-38534 Class H and K certification through Defense Supply Center Columbus (DSCC).
DDC’s aerospace and defense industry programs
DDC products have been a vital part of the success of many aerospace and defense industry programs. Aerospace and commercial programs include in which we have been involved includes the Boeing 777, Airbus A330 / 340 and Global Express, the International Space Station, and precision industrial robotics programs.
Military programs include the F-16, F/A-18, Tornado, F-22, C-17, C-130, F-15, F-35, KC-135, E-2C, A-10 Warthog, Apache/Longbow helicopter, Eurofighter Typhoon, Rafale, and M1 / A2 tanks.
1553 and ARINC data bus products
DDC provides an extensive range of component, board, software, and IP products to support many 1553 and 429 data bus applications. We supply MIL-STD-1553 terminal and transceiver components in hermetically sealed ceramic or innovative high-performance miniature plastic packages.
We also provide data bus board products for both flight-worthy embedded applications and laboratory test applications in PCI, PCMCIA, USB, PMC, cPCI, PC/104, PC/104 Plus, and VME form factors. Software libraries, applications programs and drivers for Windows® 9x/2000/XP, Windows NT, Linux, VxWorks, and Integrity operating systems can all support these board and component products.
High-speed fiber channel products
DDC's wide range of high-speed fiber channel products can 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. Air or conduction cooling is available, ensuring these products are rugged and can be used over extended temperature ranges without the necessity of upscreening.
Our GigEXTREME Ethernet cards are specially designed for embedded avionics and vetronic systems. A TCP / IP off-load engine (TOE) implements the full TCP / IP protocol stack, therefore freeing up valuable host processor bandwidth. These Ethernet cards are available with either electrical or optical interfaces on a conduction-cooled PMC form factor.
Hybrid motor drives and controllers for space applications
DDC can supply motor drive and controller solutions for brush, three-phase brushless, and induction motors for operation from 28VDC to 270VDC, and that can power up to 64kW loads. Motor drives for space applications are rated up to 100,000 rad for radiation hardness.
Solid-state power controllers for power distribution systems
As a major supplier of military qualified, high-reliability solid-state power controllers (SSPCs), DDC was the first to offer commercial and fully qualified MIL-PRF-38534 and Class K space-level screening for these products. SSPCs replace traditional electromechanical relays and circuit breakers in power distribution systems, offering more accurate trip protection with solid-state reliability.
SSPCs from DDC support real-time computer control and digital status reporting, and possess both instant trip and true I²T wire protection. SSPC technology is used in multi-channel boards to provide the lowest possible cost per channel.
Synchro / resolver conversion components and cards
DDC is a leader in the design and development of the smallest, most accurate Synchro / resolver conversion components available. Reference oscillators, synchro boosters, and special function LVDT-to-digital converters are also offered.
Globally renowned for high-quality synchro / resolver cards, DDCs extensive range includes angle-position indicators, simulators, combo cards, and software to meet today's COTS / MOTS requirements. Available form factors include cPCI, PCI, PMC, PC/104, ISA, VME and VXI cards with software support for Windows 95/98/2000, Windows NT, Windows XP, Linux, LabVIEW and VxWorks operating systems.
