eNet2-1553™ Revolutionizes 1553 to Ethernet Connectivity
RIO RANCHO, N.M.–(eNet2-1553. For the first time in the avionics industry, Alta has implemented an FPGA “thin-server” UDP technology to provide direct packet access (< 10 uSec) to 1553 BC, RT and BM setup memory and automatic BM Ethernet bridging. Alta’s advanced, modular software package, AltaAPI™, provides complete portability between applications written for PCI/PCIe based products and eNet2-1553 – the ultimate in code reuse and system design flexibility.)–Alta Data Technologies (Alta) announces the release of an innovative product for real-time, dual channel MIL-STD-1553 Ethernet conversion:
In addition to 1553 controls, bus signals can be generated and captured remotely for protocol and electrical troubleshooting using Alta’s unique signal capture and generator standard features.
“Our new eNet2-1553 product represents true innovation and flexibility for customer’s 1553 designs. Almost every avionics or communication system implements Ethernet LANs, and now it is easy to add real-time connectivity to their networks for one or two 1553 busses (channels). The appliance is about the size of a 4-stub 1553 coupler and runs off low power 5-30V (e.g. USB power). eNet2-1553 is a small, low-cost, rugged appliance that is ideal for lab or vehicle systems,” states Harry Wild, Vice President of Sales for Alta.
Jake Haddock, Alta CTO, adds, “We greatly reduce the circuit footprint to provide a dual channel 1553 interface in the same small can as our current ENET product – truly a remarkable design achievement. The customer has the option to control eNet2-1553 like a traditional PCI/PCIe interface card via a real-time UDP connection, and simultaneously, have time-stamped 1553 UDP packets broadcasted/bridged on the LAN. eNet2-1553 can auto-boot BC, RT and BM images making it virtually OS/machine independent.”
