EMBEDDED COMPUTING: Rugged MIL-STD-1553 modules introduced by Acromag

Acromag in Wixom, Mich., is introducing MIL-STD 1553 avionics databus modules to interface avionics and weapons subsystems to an embedded control system. Two versions of the 1553 bus interface module are available: the IP570 IndustryPack ANSI/VITA-4 card that plugs into VME, CompactPCI, and PCI bus mezzanine carrier cards or high-performance single-board computers, and the IOS-570 models for use in Acromag's I/O server industrial PC.

Both 1553 bus modules offer one or two interface channels. A DDC Micro-ACE device controls the 1553 interface, and the MIL-STD-1553 databus interface modules operate in temperatures from -40 to 85 degrees Celsius. The 1553 bus is popular for integration of flight control and vehicle management (electrical, hydraulic, environmental control) subsystems. This communication standard is also regularly used for missile system testing, air traffic control system testing, on-board aircraft system monitoring, satellite test systems, and aircraft simulators. The DDC Micro-ACE controller provides a host-side interface that is compatible with Mini-ACE or ACE architectures and supports multiple configurations (bus controller, remote terminal, or bus monitor).
