The SDK enables users to develop source code to simulate, monitor, or troubleshoot 1553 data buses with support for the latest versions of operating systems including VxWorks 6, Linux 2.6, and Windows 2000/XP.
This SDK enables users to integrate DDC's 1553 cards into their "C" source code applications. A common SDK exists across all operating systems to give the programmer portability across different platforms. The high-level functions abstract low-level hardware accesses and memory allocation such that specific hardware knowledge is not required.
The BU-65578C PC/104-Plus card provides as many as four dual-redundant MIL-STD-1553 channels, five user-programmable digital discrete I/Os, selectable external or internal time- tag clock, and an IRIG-B time synchronization input.
The card has an intelligent hardware offload engine that reduces PCI bus and host CPU use, while storing 1553 Monitor data in an IRIG-106 Chapter 10 file format. "Storing data in the industry standard IRIG-106 Chapter 10 file format allows DDC's cards to be used as a turnkey solution for digital flight data recorders", says Mike Hegarty, DDC's MIL-STD-1553 marketing manager.
