DAC Tablet Certified For Bombardier’s Dash-8

DAC International has announced that its GDC64 Tablet to Aircraft Interface Unit (TAIU) has received certification on the Bombardier Dash-8. The certification, which Fokker Services was responsible for, allows the iPad EFB solution on the Dash-8 to be connected through the GDC64 TAIU and its ARINC 429 bus to the flight management system (FMS), as well as to aircraft power. The ARINC 429 data from the FMS allows iPad apps to use real-time data in an effort to improve cockpit capabilities. The GDC64 connection is designed as an aircraft interface to give a tablet aircraft data without the need for Wi-Fi devices; tablets can be plugged into connectors located in the cockpit.
