DDC has, since 1964, been a leading designer and manufacturer of innovative electronic components for the aerospace, military, and commercial markets. We design and manufacture components, software and cards for:

  • Fiber channel
  • MIL-STD-1553 and ARINC 429 databus
  • Synchro / resolver conversion
  • Motor drives
  • Gigabit Ethernet
  • Remote power controllers (RPCs / SSPCs)

Gigabit Ethernet and fiber channel interface cards

DDC’s range of high-speed fiber channel products supports the real-time processing requirements of field-critical data networking between sensors, computer nodes, data storage, displays, and weapons, for air, sea, and ground military vehicles. Options for ruggedness include air and conduction cooling, which allows operation over extended temperature ranges without upscreening.

DDC’s GigEXTREME Ethernet cards are optimized for use in embedded avionics and vetronic systems, and feature a TCP / IP off-load Engine (TOE). The TOE implements the full TCP / IP protocol stack, which frees up valuable host processor bandwidth. Both electrical or optical interfaces, on a conduction-cooled PMC form factor, are available with our GigEXTREME Ethernet cards.

1553 and 429 data bus products

DDC has a broad line of component, board, software, and IP products that support many 1553 and 429 data bus applications. MIL-STD-1553 terminal and transceiver components are available in hermetically sealed ceramic or innovative high-performance miniature plastic packages.

Data bus board products are available for both laboratory test applications in PCI, PCMCIA, USB, PMC, cPCI, PC/104, PC/104 Plus, and VME form factors and flight-worthy embedded applications. Both board and component products are supported by software libraries, drivers and applications programs for Windows® 9x/2000/XP, Windows® NT®, Linux®, VxWorks®, and Integrity® operating systems.

Synchro / resolver cards and conversion components

DDC provides a complete range of synchro / resolver cards, including simulators, combo cards, angle-position indicators and software to meet today’s COTS / MOTS requirements. 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.

DDC is also a leading supplier of synchro / resolver conversion components – the smallest, most accurate converters on the market. Reference oscillators, synchro boosters, and special function LVDT-to-digital converters complete our range.

Hybrid motor controllers and drives

DDC can provide motor drive and controller solutions for brush, three-phase brushless, and induction motors. These are capable of powering loads up to 64kW and operate from 28VDC to 270VDC.

Field-proven solid-state power controllers

Solid-state power controllers (SSPCs) are used instead of traditional electromechanical relays and circuit breakers in power distribution systems, providing more accurate trip-protection with solid-state reliability. DDC became the first company to provide commercial and fully qualified MIL-PRF-38534 and Class K space-level screening for military-qualified, high-reliability SSPCs.

DDC’s SSPCs support real-time digital status reporting and computer control, and possess true I²T wire protection and instant trip. The technology is utilized in multi-channel boards to achieve the lowest possible cost per channel.

DDC’s aerospace and defense industry programs

Today, DDC products actively contribute to the success of many aerospace and defense industry programs.

Commercial programs include the Boeing 777, Airbus A330/340 and Global Express. We have also worked on 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 Tank.

DDC’s are registered by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) as an ISO 9001:2000 and AS9100:2004-1 compliant company, demonstrating their commitment to quality and customer satisfaction. They also possess MIL-PRF-38534 Class H and K certification through Defense Supply Center Columbus (DSCC).
