Default Should PCM receivers really cost more?


The cost of the actual hardware is insignificant compared to the engineering/certifcation etc... And the certification level is at least 'B' for a TCAS, which really drives the cost.

Now, I agree with you that the price of PCM could come down some. But as long the coding is proprietery, that is not going to happen soon.
