NLINE-U1553

USB Small, Rugged Interface for 1-2 MIL-STD-1553 channels. In-Line (NLINE) for lab or rugged deployment!

The NLINE-U1553 represents the latest USB 3 technology for 1-2 dual redundant, independent 1553 channels.
Last updated June 11, 2022
Overview
  • 1-2 Dual Redundant, Independent 1553 Busses with USB 3 SuperSpeed. NLINE Package.
  • USB 3 SuperSpeed (Type A Connector) Interface. USB 2 Compatible, But Not Recommended
  • 6 Avionics Discrete Inputs for MIL-1760 or General Use.
  • O-Scope Signal Capture on First Channel
  • IRIG-B Input, RS-485 Discrete, TTL Clock, Triggers
  • Optional NVRAM Write Disable, 2 Temp Sensors

The NLINE-U1553 implements the latest USB 3 SuperSpeed technology for 1-2 dual redundant, independent 1553 channels. Full function capability for Bus Controller (BC), multi-RT (mRT), and Bus Monitor (BM). Also, o-scope signal capture on the first channel to troubleshoot bus signals.

All built-in a small, rugged cable assembly (USB Type A connector on host side) that allows the customer to easily connect with standard 1553 jack connectors, or make their own custom cable with a Lemo break-away standard.  USB 2 backward compatible (but not recommended – USB 3 offers superior throughput performance).

For better host performance (packet throughput), Alta recommends our Thunderbolt or ENET Ethernet based products.

Signal Capture circuitry is included on the first channel for cable troubleshooting and cybersecurity modeling.  The example captures below are shown with our AltaView analyzer, or integrate captures in your application with AltaAPI SDK (included):
