ENET-1553

eNet-1553™ is an innovative product that provides real-time connectivity of 1553 operations on a Ethernet local area network (LAN): 1553 to Ethernet Converter.

Alta has combined the industry’s most advanced 32-bit 1553 FPGA protocol engine, AltaCore™, with a real-time IP/UDP thin server in a small low-power, rugged box. The customer can implement their application with the same feature-rich application programming interface, AltaAPI™, as used with standard cards – often without even recompiling - the ultimate in code portability.

Overview
  • 1 Independent, Dual Redundant (A/B) MIL-STD-1553 Channel. Real-Time Ethernet Converter
  • Small, Rugged 13.5x3.7x4cm, 200 grams
  • Thin-Server, Real-Time IP/UDP Ethernet to/from 1553 **
  • Remote 1553 Devices on the LAN
  • Full BC, mRT, BM, Signal Capture Capability
  • Auto BM Mode for 1553->Ethernet Bridging

Alta’s eNET-1553 Provides Ethernet to MIL-STD Connectivity
eNet is a small, rugged 1553 to Ethernet appliance/converter (~200 grams and about the size of a 4 stub coupler) and offers the same advanced BC, mRT and BM functions as our cards.  In addition, eNet can provide an additional independent BM mode to auto bridge (transmit) 1553 messages on user defined IP/UDP packet header. The appliance can also auto-load setup images for fast auto start-up, which would be ideal for simple RT applications that wouldn’t even need an API interface (just a standard UDP interface – usually through simple socket programming).

 

**NOTE: eNet-1553 (server) is a real-time Ethernet/1553 device/converter, but your computers’ (client) IP stack may not be! The eNet-1553 device provides real-time UDP receive and transmit requests to 1553 buffers, but the client’s IP/UDP stack will induce path delays as compared to backplane cards.

AltaAPI
Alta’s 1553 and ARINC cards include the most advanced Application Programming Interface (API) library tools in the avionics industry, AltaAPI. The API architecture is a properly OSI modeled development package that provides an extremely flexible design to provide quick porting to various operating systems (such as VxWorks 5.X/6.X/7/MILS, Integrity, LynxOS RTOS), Linux 2.4-3.X 32/64, Solaris 10, LabVIEW and Windows XP/2003/Vista/7/8/8.1/10

AltaAPI-LV
Most of Alta’s MIL-STD-1553 & ARINC products include the industry’s most advanced National Instruments’ LabVIEW™ & RT Support Tools, AltaAPI-LV. Built in native NI LabWindows™ environment and PCI VISA drivers, Alta’s AltaAPI-LV provides a unified NI tool for easy integration to LabVIEW, RT and LabWindows™ applications.

AltaView Bus Analyzer
Alta’s Windows avionics analyzer product, AltaView, provides the most modern technologies for MIL-STD-1553 and ARINC-429 network activity and data analysis.
