Universal’s Solid-State Data Transfer Unit (SSDTU) represents the next
generation of data upload and download equipment for your aircraft. Interfacing
with other Line Replaceable Units (LRU), the SSDTU features flash memory
technology that adds speed and ease of use to your data transfers. The SSDTU
will replace the floppy and ZIP disks of the DTU and DTU-100, as well as the CD/
DVD-ROM of the Accessible Data Unit (ADU). This all-in-one unit facilitates
centralized uploading/downloading for FMS, TAWS and Vision-1® databases and for
Application Server Unit (ASU) charts, checklists and E-DOCS.
Supporting Universal Serial Bus (USB) and Secure Digital (SD) mass storage
devices, the SSDTU incorporates high-speed USB and SD media ports directly in
the faceplate. These media ports support and function as disk drives. The SSDTU
appears as a network file server to other interfaced LRUs, and transfers data
files between the media ports and the LRU using a high-speed Ethernet data bus
connection. Up to eight compatible products are supported simultaneously,
including Universal’s FMS, TAWS, Vision-1®, UniLink®, ASU and Universal Cockpit
Display (UCD) systems.
Lighter and smaller than the DTU-100, the SSDTU measures 2.25 inches high, 5.75
inches wide, and 7.76 inches deep and weighs just 2.4 lbs. To accommodate a
variety of uses, the SSDTU is available in fixed-mount and portable versions.
The SSDTU is certified to FAA TSO-C109 and meets EASA ETSO-C109 certification
