Alta Data Technologies has introduced a quad channel MIL-STD-1553 card, PMC-1553, to its line of avionics interfaces.
The PMC-1553 is built around Alta’s advanced FPGA protocol engine, the AltaCore, and is designed to reduce CPU overhead of process & control of 1553 communications. New features for Bus Controller functions include variable framing and subframing, message scheduling with IMGs or frame offset and flexible message branching. The card supports full multiple Remote Terminal functions and chronological and mailbox (RT Map) monitoring. AltaCore also provides full hardware Playback (PB), and a Signal Generator (SG) to allow detailed bit shaping for validation test support.
