MPCIE2-1553

1-2 MIL-STD-1553 Channels Mini PCI Express Interface Card

The MPCIE2-1553 is a mini PCI Express Full-Mini Type 2 Interface Card for 1 or 2 MIL-STD-1553 channels in an incredible small package. The MPCIE2-1553 implements the latest MIL-STD-1553 32-bit FPGA Protocol Engine Technology (AltaCore-1553) with the industry leading Multi-Layer Software development software package (AltaAPI). Our Card and Software Packages are Designed for Fast, Portable Integrations. The MPCIE2-1553 is the Only Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS) Card that Passes and can Execute SAE AS4111/4112 Protocol Tests, and provides O-scope signal capture on the first 1553 channel.

Overview
  • 1-2 Independent, Dual Redundant (A/B) MIL-STD-1553 Channels
  • Single Lane Full-Mini PCI Express Type F2
  • Commercial, & Extended Temp
  • 1553B, 1553A, 1760, Link-16, SADL Compatible
  • One MByte, 32-bit High Speed RAM per Channel
  • Dual Function Model: BC/Mon or mRT(1-32)/Mon

Alta Data Technologies’ MPCIE2-1553 interface module is a 1-2 channel, dual redundant 1553 card supported by the latest software technologies. The cards are based on the industry’s most advanced 32-bit 1553 FPGA protocol engine, AltaCore™, and by a feature-rich application programming interface, AltaAPI™, which is a multi-layer ANSI C and Windows .NET 2.0 (MSVS 2005 C++, C#, VB .NET) architecture. This hardware and software package provides increased system performance and reduces integration time.

The MPCIE-1553’s BC capability, including variable message framing/subframing with transmission scheduling provides the most advanced BC control operations. RT, Monitor, Playback and Signal Generator functions also include industry leading functions to meet the most demanding requirements.

AltaCore is guaranteed 1553B Notice II & IV compliant and all cards are manufactured to the highest IPC-Level 3 standards and ISO 9001 processes. Cards are available in dual-function (BC/Mon or multi-RT/Monitor) or full-function (BC, mRT and Mon) configurations. Playback and Signal Generation are part of BC operations and Waveform Capture is for Monitor only operation. We are committed to a risk free integration and will be glad to help with any level of your system development.
