Alta Data Technologies launches a mini embedded mezzanine board for MIL-STD-1553 networks, the MEZ-E1553. The MEZ-E1553 board provides 1-2 dual redundant 1553A/B/C channels with an Ethernet backplane interface on a small form factor 3.6 x 5.6 cm PCB. The board is available in Dual BC/BM or mRT/BM or Full Function BC/mRT/BM models.
The MEZ-E1553 is from Alta’s popular ENET product line. The MEZ-E1553 is a rugged mezzanine product that can easily be integrated into a system design. There is a full documentation series that includes STEP 3-D Files and sample ESS test programs. The units are guaranteed 1553A/B/C compliant with the AS4111 5.2 Protocol Test reports.
The AltaAPI SDK development software with a straight Berkley BSD socket layer that is compatible with almost any operating system, including the DO-178 systems. The MEZ-E1553 is easier to integrate into systems than the 1553 ASIC chips and includes greater functionality. Dual function (BC/Mon or mRT/Mon) or Full Function (BC/mRT/Mon) – chips do not offer the full functionality or signal capture of the MEZ-E1553 product line.
Signal Capture circuitry is included on the first channel for cable troubleshooting and also cybersecurity modeling.
