New MIL-STD-1553 One and Four Lane PCI Express Interface Cards

Rio Rancho, NM (Feb 8, 2010) – Alta Data Technologies (Alta) announces the release of two new MIL-STD-1553 products for PCI Express (PCIE) systems: One (1L) and four lane (4L) PCIE-1553 interface cards. These cards provide many industry-first features, including the first low profile PCI Express 1553 interface card.   The PCI Express 1553 cards support Windows™, Linux, RTOS and LabVIEW™ systems and are the only products that can run and execute the SAE AS4111 5.2 RT Validation tests, and thus, truly 1553B Notice II and IV compliant.

“These new PCIE4L-1553 and PCIE1L-1553 cards, based on our proven AltaCore-1553, provide advanced MIL-STD-1553 capabilities for PCI Express systems – and we went a step further to provide both single lane and four lane PCI Express models. The single lane card (1L) is a low profile design for embedded or rack-mount machines. While many of our competitors implemented PCI Express with low throughput PCI bridge chips, Alta implemented a native PCI Express design for increased performance and MSI interrupt support,” says Jake Haddock, CTO of Alta.

Harry Wild, VP of Sales of Alta states, “These new 1553 PCI Express cards provide interface and test capabilities second to none, and our AltaAPI™, AltaView-1553™ analyzer and AltaRTVal™ RT Validation software tools are the latest in modular, portable technologies. The PCIE4L offers 1-4 and the PCIE1L offers 1-2 dual redundant 1553 network channels. Customers will achieve significant savings in integration and test time with these new products   The A/D signal capture and signal generators are industry-leading features not found on competitor’s products. We also offer single-card combination ARINC and 1553 PCI Express Configurations.”
