Eight Channels Mil-Std-1553 Compact PCI (cPCI) Board

Thursday, November 22, 2012 by Sital

Multi-Standard cPCI card for avionics interfaces including Mil-Std-1553, H009, WB-194, ARINC 429, digital and avionics discrete I/Os, RS-485 and others.

cPCI HyperBoard is a cPCI-compatible, multi-standard board that contains up to eight channels of Mil-Std-1553. It is compatible with Mil-Std-1553B and Mil-Std-1760 and its channels can be configured independently to work with H009 and WB194 in conjunction with 1553 (other protocols also available).

The board includes four channels that can be configured as RS-485/RS-422, IRIG-B or ARINC-429. It also includes eight avionics I/O ports and eight digital I/Os.

The board is provided with software drivers for Windows and Linux along with high-level API to ease application development.

Sital's Luthier™ program for 1553 bus simulation and analysis is also provided. It includes an advanced GUI (Graphical User Interface) for controlling the board, generating bus traffic and monitoring and emulating a real bus environment.
