PCCD-1553 and
ECD54-1553

MIL-STD-1553 PCMCIA/PCCARD &
PCI ExpressCard 54mm Cards

The PCCD-1553 & ECD54-1553 Interface Cards and AltaAPI Support Software Represent the Latest MIL-STD-1553 32-bit FPGA Protocol Engine Technology. The PCCD-1553 is a standard type II PCMCIA/PCCARD and the ECD54-1553 is a standard 54mm PCI ExpressCard. The PCCD/ECD54-1553 Passes SAE AS4111/4112 Protocol Tests and is the Only Commercial Off the Shelf Card That Supports for Full Protocol Testing AND Signal Capture as Standard Product.

Overview
  • 1 or 2 Independent, Dual Redundant 1553 Channels. PCMCIA/PCCARD or ExpressCard 54mm
  • Commercial and Extended Temp Models
  • Rugged, Thumb-Screw Locking Connector Standard
  • **Signal Capture on First Channel - Standard**
  • 1553B, 1553A, 1760, Link-16, SADL Compatible
  • One MByte, 32-bit High Speed QDR RAM per Channel

Alta Data Technologies’ PCCD-1553 & ECD54-1553 interface modules are a multi-channel (1-2) 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 PCCD/ECD54-1553’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: 2008 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.

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.
