GE Fanuc Embedded Systems debuts first COTS MIL-STD-1553 PMC module

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., 27 June 2006. GE Fanuc Embedded Systems, through its Condor Engineering center, has released the P-10SF, a new single-function PMC module for 10Mbit MIL-STD-1553B performance. The P-10SF PMC offers one or two channels of dual-redundant, 10Mbit, MIL-STD-1553B Notice 2 protocol using RS-485 transceivers. This interface is an excellent choice for flight controls, actuators, electro-pneumatic controllers, or similar applications of standard 1553 requiring higher data rates.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., 27 June 2006. GE Fanuc Embedded Systems, through its Condor Engineering center, has released the P-10SF, a new single-function PMC module for 10Mbit MIL-STD-1553B performance. It is designed to offer a less expensive architecture than regular 1Mbit 1553, while providing up to 10 times the data throughput.

The P-10SF PMC offers one or two channels of dual-redundant, 10Mbit, MIL-STD-1553B Notice 2 protocol using RS-485 transceivers. This interface is an excellent choice for flight controls, actuators, electro-pneumatic controllers, or similar applications of standard 1553 requiring higher data rates.

Available configurations include 1 or 2 dual-redundant, fully compliant 1553/1760 interface channels with 8 discrete lines usable for RT address lines and BC triggers. The P-10SF offers BC or single RT or Bus Monitor operational modes.

Advanced features include full error detection, programmable IGT and RT response times, BC scheduling, and "one-shot" operations.

The P-10SF card is designed to industry standard conduction-cooled specifications and is available in commercial and extended temperature configurations. I/O connections are available from either the front bezel or via the P14 connector. The P-10SF is also available integrated on a PCI or 3U CompactPCI carrier card.
